Fall Lillian Jumper

 Lillian is a very easy jumper to assemble.  It has three outside (fashion fabric) pieces and 3 lining pieces.  It goes together in less than an hour.  The fabric is a Robert Kaufman corduroy print.  I tired to anchor the busyness with red ribbon, but the print was so busy it was hard to get a great photo.  It doesn't look so crazy in real life.

The back is simple with buttons all the way down the back.

Lillian comes with a square pocket.  I wanted something fancier, so I grabbed the last pattern I had done with pockets and added Modkids Frida pockets without the elastic.

Pattern Description: Lillian is a sleeveless, lined shift dress that buttons in the back. It has short slits at the bottom of side seams for easier movement trimmed with fabric or ribbon bows. Patch pocket can be trimmed with rickrack.

Pattern Sizing:Sizes 3-12 in one package. I made a size 7.

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?Yes

Were the instructions easy to follow?Yes

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?This dress has 3 fashion fabric pieces and 3 lining pieces. The assembly is fast and easy. It is cut to fit through the shoulders. It also does not A-line out so far that it looks like a baby outfit.

Fabric Used:Robert Kaufman corduroy

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:The pattern comes with a square pocket and I wanted something snazzier. I grabbed the Modkid Frida pattern and used their pocket. I didn't add elastic, but ribbon along the top pocket.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?Yes. It is great without a shirt in the summer and cute with a shirt underneath in the winter.

Conclusion: Great, easy pattern for summer or winter using very subdued fabric or WILD fabric. Great versatility.
