A comfortable Jasper Dress

After seeing the Jasper Dress (and sweater) from Paprika Patterns by Rachel (from Maak het met Rachel) and Maartje (from Huisje Boompje Boefjes) and also the Jasper sweater by Maartje (from Huisje Boompje Boefjes) I was convinced to buy the pattern. I love that type of dress, it is comfortable and warm during the winter and still looks nice (at least I think so).

In the end I love the result of the dress. I can wear it inside the house, it is so cosy, but is nice enough to wear it to work. I bought the fabric at Hoofs close to my hometown. During our sewing weekend, when I made this dress I came across some nice leftovers from others (Marie-Paule from So Popo Sew and Stéphanie from Naaiz!), which turned out to be a perfect match with my fabric. A winning combination was born!

Changes I made to the pattern:
* More narrow sleeves, I made the pattern in size 2-3 and took the smallest sleeve size (size 1), they are just perfect.
* I shortened the sleeves with 1 cm, still they are nice and long, the way I like it.
* I made a more fitted dress by taking around 2 cm from each side. I often make this change to dresses when the fit is not as fitted as I would like.
* I also lengthened the dress with a couple of cm, this is just because I think a longer dress looks better on me. I saw on other blogs that the length of the dress ends about halfway on the upper leg. I prefer my dresses to be just above the knee.

Pattern: Jasper Sweater/Dress by Paprika Patterns
* main fabric is a combination between sweat and fleece (from the inside), which I bought at Hoofs in Den Bosch
* the side panels are made from a scrap (quite big) by Marie-Paule from So Popo Sew
* the inside of the pockets are also made from a scrap, they were from Stéphanie from Naaiz!
