Instructions are given for top stitching and using heavy thread. The Paisley Pincushion really was trying to make a professional looking jumper......and I think this does the trick.
Jumper is not a "sack" fitting type.....it has darts in the back and an flared skirt. You can look ready for "country" life and still look like a girl at the same time. The hem is deeper than the usual 5/8" and so it doesn't curl. I like to wash it, then dry for maybe 10-15 minutes, then finish on a hanger. Because of the top-stitching, it doesn't even need ironing. Yeah!!!
Make up in med. wt. denim or linen......fabrics that are a bit heavier than cotton. I've done it in corderoy also.
If you are thinking.....where will I get the hardware?......I live in the sticks.!.......try ebay......or a second hand store and grab an old pair of overalls in the men's department. Then add some new metal buttons and you are good to go.
