When I saw this pattern could be sewn for boys and girls, I immediately knew who was getting a new pair of overalls! David was sorely in need of a new pair, his last pair looking very ragged and (almost!) worn though the double knees.
The Jonagold Jumper can be made in sizes newborn to 12 years. They can be sewn in cropped length, with a skirt, and with a scooped neck or straight. The straps can be fastened with traditional overall hardware, knotted, clipped, or various other ways. The pockets can be square or curved. And it can be sewn with knit fabric!
The pattern is very thorough in helping you get a perfect fit on both the top and bottom parts of the Jonagold Jumper. There we so many versions of this pattern sewn, and they are all so cute and different, that it really shows how versatile this pattern can be.
For David’s Jonagold Jumper, we went for a solid farmer look to go along with the Farmer’s Market theme. Since David is one of the main helpers on chores around our mini farm, a good solid pair of overalls in a necessity. He helps feed the rabbits and chickens, plus herds the dairy goats whenever necessary.
The fabric of his Jonagold Jumper uses some sturdy denim we got from CaliFabrics. They will hold up well to the rigors a farm kid puts them though for quite a long time…maybe even long enough to be passed down to his younger brother!
Yes, we did sneak in some vegetable themed fabric into this Jonagold Jumper. The inside of the bib front and back is lined with carrot fabric! And the straps are too. Since the denim is so thick, it wouldn’t have worked to have lined them with denim, so carrot fabric to the rescue!
Underneath his Jonagold Jumper, David is wearing a Thyme Shirt. More on that in a future post… You really should check out the Jonagold Jumper hashtag on Instagram. There are so many cute versions. All greenhouse photos by Carrie of Beri Bee Designs.
