McCall's 6041 Jumper
I have sewn this jumper 6 times. I have been wearing this pattern for 20 years. I find that it is very versatile and that using different fabrics makes a big difference. I have sewn it in black corduroy for winter and in light floral on white background for summer. I can wear it with a full dress underneath or with a tee-shirt. I add flannel slips and bloomers for added warmth. The solid colonial blue has small white piping to detail the bodice.
The pattern comes with an underneath dress that has long sleeves and a lacy collar. You'll see that under the orange/red one in the foremost position.
I am wearing McCall's #4548 underneath the dark purple version of this jumper. Many blouses look good with this, any sleeve length. It's my favorite pattern.
