Inside: Use the free criss cross jumper pattern to make an adorable Christmas Jumper with embroidery. This simple project makes a beautiful Embroidered Christmas Jumper.
I designed the free criss cross jumper dress several years ago and I’ve made many versions over the years. This Embroidered Christmas jumper version is one of my favorites! With corduroy on the outside and cozy flannel on the inside, this dress is as comfortable as is it cute. Today I’ll give you the embroidery details as well as the pattern link.
Embroidered Christmas Jumper
You may notice that Rose looks tiny in this post… It’s a new post for my site but I wrote it two years ago. It first appeared on the Stitching Sewcial Brother Sews blog in 2017. I’m now sharing it here to inspire you all.
Ok! Lets take a closer look at some of the fun features on this free sewing patterns. The pattern and embroidery details are below.
Paired with tights or leggings this pinafore is a cute Christmas outfit and comfortable too! I think I need to make Rose another one in a large size since this one doesn’t fit anymore.
Here’s what you need to make this cute project!
Once you have those two items you can make your own cute Christmas dress/jumper. In addition to the cute embroidery on the front I love the button shoulders in this free dress pattern.
I also adore the back and the feature that gives this free pdf pattern its name… the criss cross!
Let’s get making! Begin by cutting out the pattern as directed. I used corduroy for the outer layer and soft flannel for the inside. After you have two fronts and two backs take the outer front piece and place your hoop in the center of the front.
Use a tear away stabilizer under the fabric.
Add your embroidery.
Remove as much of the stabilizer as you can from the back.
Proceed to sew the pattern as directed. The flannel lining keeps the back of the embroidery from being rough and adds a a warm layer as well.
Then sew the rest of the pattern as directed! Super cute Christmas outfit ready to go!
You could also add embroidery to any of these other free cute dress patterns for a similar result.
