I like your take on this pattern, very inventive. So what did you do to adjust it for a fuller figure?

I love this! I loved the design but passed on the pattern because of my figure. Your version looks great and shows that with some modifications, a curvy woman could pull this off!

Wow! You did an amazing thing with this pattern! I would never have thought of making this dress into a jumper, and the outcome is wonderful! I no longer wear dresses like this, but you got me thinking... I love this!

What a wonderful idea to adapt the pattern into a jumper. I would have loved wearing the dress as designed at age 20, but thought it was too "young" for me now. Thanks for showing how to adapt it.

I see a contest coming on: transforming a pattern that only a model could wear into something anyone could wear. The straps show up well against the red shirt. Good on you!

Wow - that's a neat look! I too fell in love with this pattern the moment I laid eyes on it, BUTT... now I'm gonna buy it! Thanks for coming up with a way that allows we mature ladies a way to wear this awesome design in real life. xoxoxo

this is fabulous. What a great idea to adapt the pattern this way. I only wish the photos were enlargeable so we could get a better look! Helen

Very interesting idea! Was thinking of trying this as a top-seeing your jumper makes me think this could work!
