My three newest patterns are all ready for you and available now as downloadable e-patterns in the Fishsticks Designs Pattern Store! First up is the Katie J. Jumper. I love all the options that this simple little dress offers! You can see the two strap options above. The stretch strap is elasticized and has a pretty gathered look. My oldest daughter, Morgan, loves this one for our granddaughter, Katie, because it’s cute and easy to get on and off!The knotted strap dresses the jumper up a little and adds a bit of modern style. The strap pulls through a loop that is attached to the bodice rather than through a button-hole. This gives the bodice a comfortable fit.There are two back choices for the jumper. The one-piece back on the basic jumper gives it a contemporary feel. (This pictures also gives you a good idea of where the basic jumper hem falls. It’s right at or just below the knee. )
The gathered back is really just a repeat of the front bodice and skirt, and it gives the jumper a fuller, more traditional finished look.There are two reversible options for this dress, too! (You can peek at the second option in that picture just above.) The first reversible option is the basic reversible jumper. It’s a straight-forward reversible option that you can make with either back choice.
The second reversible option is the Double-Layer Reversible Jumper. The Double-Layer Reversible Jumper is slightly longer than the Basic Jumper, falling about 2″ below the knee. The reverse side of this jumper is finished with a bottom band which peeks out under the hem on the main side. That wraps up the details on the Katie J. Jumper. You can find it right here: The Katie J. Jumper E-Pattern. I’ll be back in a bit to share more about the Mud Puddle Splashers and the Scrappy Sack!
