Looking for a womens pinafore (I believe the US term is 'Jumper') pattern. I have a plain red 20's style cloche hat and I've set my heart on a red tartan dress to go with it. There seems to be so many variations on a theme about. Any pattern you would particularly recommend?
I want to incorperate tartain (apparently that's "in" at the moment and a bit of 20's/downton abbey chique) -- Edited on 10/11/12 6:37 AM --

This vogue dress has been reviewed here. It could work, especially if you open the neckline up a smidge.

Jumper patterns are hard to come by. They were very popular in the 80's (I was a teacher and wore them all the time). You might check vintage sites and Etsy maybe. Your outfit sounds cute-do you have the fabric yet? I am wondering where you might find that. I haven't seen anything even similar here.

This Simplicity jumper pattern has a fitted bodice with empire seam and two skirt options. Or, if you're looking for a looser silhouette, this New Look pattern might work (see first view on the left).
Whatever pattern you choose, be sure to wear your fabulous hat in the photos!
