Two Homemade Linen Jumpers
The patterns for both of these are full length jumper dresses that I shortened into tops. The lighter one is from a pattern by Kwick Sew and is one of Kerstin Martensson's designs. Both jumpers are made with medium weight linen from Fabric.com. The lighter jumper was Kaufman Essex Wide Linen Blend and the brown fabric is Brussels Washer Linen Blend. The pattern for the brown one is one I have had for 20 years so it may be discontinued but it is by McCall's Easy Stitch 'n Save #7479. It didn't have pockets so I just added them.
Really cute casings and ties on the back of the jumper. This jumper has really deep pockets which I love. Those skinny little ties were a bear to turn even with the old bobby pin trick!
