In response to the questions we were asked after we posted The Fruitful Season: Part 1, here are some answers.
We get most of our tops from LLBean. The one I had on in this photo was from Christopher & Banks, but we havenâ€™t seen that style the last couple of years.
The pattern for these jumpers is Simplicity 5917. Anna says it is very simple to make and fairly quick. She has made her jumper, Sarahâ€™s, and is almost done with mine that are to be conference jumpers from matching fabric. Mary (12) has now finished hers too. We added length to the jumper pattern because we wear our jumpers about ankle length.
When I was nursing babies, I didnâ€™t make nursing dresses. I had a couple of skirts and tops, but I mostly wore jumpers. I had a jumper pattern that had a bodice that buttoned so that worked for nursing. I also had a jumper pattern with a drop waist and arm hole openings down to the waist. I could nurse in that jumper as well.
Here is a Momâ€™s Corner where I share how I have worked with my girls in teaching them to sew.
Trusting in Jesus,
