The first of the fall jumpers for Katerina

The pattern is Simplicity 5645, size 7. The fabric I used was a faux-suede. It has a beautiful drape to it but it is a bit hard to push pins through, so I did quite a bit of pinching of seams instead.

The pattern went together easily. I added top-stitching at the waist and I used the same fabric for bias-binding in the armholes. For the next dress, the only alteration I will make is a narrowing of the shoulders.

Very cozy with a nice flow. It will be a great twirling jumper!
