With so many jumper dress styles available, your first thought probably won’t be on making one yourself. But you’d be surprised how easy it is to pull one together. The
jumper t-shirt dress featured is a mixed piece that I made a few years ago. It is actually a fusion of sheer sleeves from a vintage top & the bottom part of a printed menswear jumper. After carefully sewing them together, I then filled in the paint detail with my customising finishing touches. It really is quite simple and even easy to do if you can hand stitch. If you can’t, try taking your ideas to your local dry cleaners, where the seamstress/tailor can properly execute your designs for you.
There’s a joy in fully understanding your personal style and if you find pieces that almost fit the bill, don’t be afraid to take them all the way by yourself. Like taking the sleeves of a trench coat as shown in how to layer jackets & coats. Or even shortening the length of a dress like in wearing shades of green. Of course, please be realistic when taking on D.I.Y projects as the point is to have a more personalised closet, not an extended to-do list.
