I love patterns like this. I can use them over and over without feeling like I am overdoing the same design. This jumper pattern makes an excellent tank top dress for your baby in the summer. It is loose enough to easily fit cloth diapers under it and feels breezy cool. You could also use it in the winter time with tights, leggings, and a long sleeve.
This baby jumper pattern pairs perfectly with my ruffled diaper cover pattern! With Claire, my beautiful daughter and model, I love to dress her in the jumper and a tie-dyed cloth diaper as shown here. I'm a bit crazy for cloth diapers, so I don't mind showing off my handiwork.
The baby jumper pattern comes with multiple sizes. They are all printable from a home printer, so you don't have to worry about scaling, drawing, drafting, or cutting large. They have the seam allowance built in and don't require anything on your part except the printing. Once printed, the directions are incredibly easy to follow and understand. In fact, with most of the patterns that I design, I have one picture per step. In this tutorial, most of the steps have TWO pictures. You CAN'T mess it up.
I recently had someone ask me if my patterns were for beginners. They are. If you can thread your own machine and know the difference between a zig zag stitch and a straight stitch, you can follow my pattern. This pattern uses ALL straight stitches, NO HAND SEWING and is completely reversible with a professional finishing touch. You will be so proud of yourself for making such a darling dress with this baby jumper pattern.
Have you thought about dressing a newborn in some fancy homemade dresses? You should! It takes a minimal amount of fabric to make a newborn baby jumper with this pattern. Can you imagine the gorgeous photos you could take or have professionally taken?
Don't you love the bows that I am pairing with these baby jumpers? They are all one of a kind creations that I design in my sewing room. Recently I have started to offer them for free on my website. Add a flower headband to any outfit for any size baby.
Enough about the flower headbands, lets get back to the baby jumper pattern.
The sizes that are included for the jumper pattern are as follows:
- 0-3 months
- 3-6 months
- 6-12 months
- 12-18 months
- 18-24 months
- 24-36 months
Another thing that I want to mention about this pattern compared to others, is that the arm holes are not exceptionally large. I have purposefully designed the jumper pattern to allow room for chubby arms and sleeves, but I have left them small enough that the jumper looks very nice without an undershirt. There's nothing worse then having too much skin showing through an armhole.
