Leopard Print Jumper Dress

I have a leopard print dress refash for you today! Rawr!

DSCN1503Look at this little darling!! I LOVE it! This dress makes me think of jumper dresses I wore as a little girl. Complete with a long sleeve shirt and stirrup pants! I wanted to complete the same look with this dress. Maybe minus the stirrup pants…

DSCN1507I started by taking the length from the dress up to the bottom of the lace band. I clearly need more light in my sewing room because I was POSITIVE the thread was black, when clearly you can see in the picture that it is navy. OOPS!

DSCN1509I cut the top of the dress down the middle up to the lace. Then pinned back the flaps to make a v-neck. Sewed that together.

Under the v-neck I added 3 black buttons. During most refashions these decorative buttons are removed because they serve no purpose. I decided to add them because I thought it was a nice added detail to this!


Then I added 2 more buttons at the shoulder straps. I thought this would complete my jumper dress look!

A nice little throwback to my childhood 🙂


Happy Refashioning!!!
