I wanted to make matching sister and brother outfits for a friend's baby shower & it's been a while since I've done a project from the One Yard Wonders book, so I dusted it off and found the All Ages Classic Jumper... it fit the bill perfectly!
The jumper was pretty simple to make, but has some nice finishing details, like interfacing on the front top panel, and buttons, so it doesn't look like you just whipped it up in an hour. I used Michael Miller fabrics. The floral print is a Sandi Henderson design from her Meadowsweet 2 collection & the trim & tie are dots in mustard. I really love how flexible this pattern is! The back has elastic in a casing, so if it's too loose, you could just take the elastic in a bit, & you can adjust the length with the button straps. The finished dress is really versatile too since you can pair it with a long sleeve shirt in the cooler months and it would even work as a tunic or top as the little one grows.
I can't wait for Max to arrive so we can see him in his tie onesie with big sis Ava!
