Looking for School Uniform Pattern

LizzyH's picture

Hi - does anyone know where I can find a pattern for a v-neck jumper school uniform? I would love to be able to sew my own and save some money. Thanks!

LizH:  I saw an jumper pattern at Grainline Gear (#1519) in a misses sized XXS-XXL.  It was on the Wachter's Silk site.  It was a straight jumper with a veeneck and buttons down the front.  Would that work?

Liz,


Try looking for such a pattern in places like Thrift SStores; Salvation Army/St V de Paul etc; often they have tons of older patterns at 10c or 25c apiece.


Otherwise search on one of the "Vintage Pattern" sellers sites.


Last of all, remember those "Golden Hands" magazines/books from way back when, they included patterns in the bound versions and will have one since they were fashionable still 'way back when'.


Hope this helps,

I would buy a uniform an then use it as a pattern. my son is very skinny - i couldn't find uniform pants in his size...so I just made him blue twill pants with an elastic waist and lots of pockets...he even made a few of them with me...deciding on design details (in seam plaid pockets...1/2 elastic pants)


 


a jumper for a girl should be pretty easy to draft from an existing one.
