Item #2 in the ALSPAC Challenge

Item #2 in Amy Lyn's Stash Pattern Attack Challenge or ALSPAC is a misses' size 14 jumper made from a 1998 Simplicity pattern.  I used a 100% cotton green paisley fabric that made it's way to me via a trash bag of fabric left in my cubicle that was bound for the landfill if I didn't give it a home.  A salvaged zipper, hook and eye, and thread.  I really like the clean lines of this pattern, the patch pockets on the front, and it went together super easy.

Since I was limited in the amount of fabric I paired with this pattern I made the straight jumper as seen in picture B rather than the A-line version which required about 1/2 a yard more fabric than I had.  And yes, this pattern will be getting matched with some fabric to make the A-line version with the little belt and bag.  I'm thinking blue denim and orange, I love that combo. 

So here are a few shot of the finished version which I just posted on my Etsy shop 

And this is is the same jumper paired with a cute cardigan sweater I just upcycled with some white roses I created from a too small white t-shirt and scraps of green fleece and sewed by hand randomly to the front.

Next up is this combo I blindly pulled from the bucket today.  I only have enough fabric to make the shirt version but with long sleeves.
