the annual jump rope dress :: third grade editionSeptember 12, 2017 / bygail / Categories : Feeds
I actually made two Jump Rope dresses in the days before school started this year. The first was a size 8, which I chose based on the fact that I’ve gone up one size every year. It came out way too big. Turns out using your child’s actual measurements is a better sizing method – who knew?? I guess the upside is that next year’s dress is already finished? I’m hoping she might be able to wear a size 8 in fourth and fifth grade so we can finish out her elementary school career with this pattern.The fabric is by Miriam Bos for Birch Fabrics, from her Wildland collection. Both my mom and my sister asked if I’d used this print before…no, but I definitely have a thing for navy blue fabric with little colorful shapes all over it. Some cases in point.
And I never posted about her second grade Jump Rope dress from last fall, so here’s a record that it existed. The older she gets, the more she actually wears these dresses – those early versions mostly hung in the closet, but the last two saw the light of day pretty regularly.
