Strapless Bandeau Shorty Jumper

This project was a tricky one. Though I like the end result, it took a TON of swearing to get me to that point. The directions weren't the easiest to follow, and I had to adjust the measurements on the length. I made the 5t. I also ended up putting elastic on the lower waist line so that it would make it "bubble" more. Plus that way, it could be worn with or without the belt. I also didn't use the d-ring version for the belt. I just made a simple tie out of coordinating fabric. I probably won't be making this one again any time soon. Though Taylor loves it, I am not the biggest fan.

Here is what you need for this project....
  • Locate the pattern from the book
  • 1 yard of fabric....it calls for different width for different sizes but I just used 44/45" and was fine for the bigger size
  • 2 1" d-rings
  • 1/2 yards of 1/4" elastic.....more if you plan to do the waist like I did.

Also, sorry this took me so long to post. It has been done for about 2 weeks. Every stinking time I go to do something on the computer, my internet has been down. Hopefully it will be better for the rest of the summer.


  1. I have this book too and I don't remember that outfit?...it is sooo cute! If I show this to my daughter she will be on me to make one asap. I can tell your daughter loves it! She is cute.

  2. I'm sorry about the swearing! I'd love to hear about what part of the instructions didn't work for you. It looks fantastic though! So cute!
