Jumper Pattern / Exchange Dress / Interchangeable Panels / Holiday Dress / Appliquéd Jumper / Sundress / Redrafting Project


I love the idea behind this pattern. We all love to see our little ones in dresses made for an occasion but who has the time to sew a dress for every holiday. The exchange dress solves that problem. It has a removable front panel that can be customized for each holiday and the panel is reversible so 1 panel covers 2 occasions. I made this dress in corduroy one fall with 2 panels. The first one had an appliqué for Halloween on one side and Thanksgiving on the other. The second had a Christmas appliqué on one side and a winter appliqué for the days between Thanksgiving and Christmas and again after the holidays on the other. In the summer you can wear it as a sundress with appliqués for Independence Day or maybe a beach scene.

NOTE: This is a pattern redrafting project using the Children's Corner Lucy pattern. You will learn how to create the panels and update the jumper. You will make the finished pattern it is not included.

The appliques and Children's Corner Lucy are NOT INCLUDED. Lucy is available on my site. Ellen McCarn has a wonderful line of pre-cut appliqués which work very well on the dress. Some are available in my ETSY store.

Shipping from United States

I ship within 1-2 business days using USPS 1st class shipping whenever possible.
When I find that the shipping charged was higher than necessary I will refund the overage.

Shipping for Pleater Needles US customers
Needles are shipped in a heavy cardboard envelope to prevent bending. While this would seem to increase the shipping cost actually USPS charges the same rate for 1, 2 and 3 oz. 1 oz is the smallest weight I can use.
Based on this I have set a flat shipping rate of $3.00 for up to 80 pleater needles shipped in 1 package within the United States.
Shipping for Pleater Needles International customers
I am happy to ship Internationally but must calculate the shipping. Please request a custom order so I can add the appropriate postage for your country.
