Learn how to make this adorable tie shoulder jumper dress!

I’ve been wanting to make a jumper dress for months, and when I picked up this ponte knit from Joanns I knew it would make a perfect jumper dress.
Tie shoulder dresses and tops are trendy for fall, and I love that they add a little feminine touch to an item of clothing.


This project is perfect for beginners!

This sewing project is quick and easy, and honestly any beginner seamstress could make this dress!

Materials you’ll need for this project


First you’ll need to create your pattern pieces.

First, create your pattern pieces. Use a tank dress or tank to create your pattern. Use this video to learn how to create your own pattern if you don’t know how!

When creating your pattern pieces, add 6-8 (mine were 8″ past the shoulder seam) inches of extra strap above the shoulders for the straps. I made them a sort of bunny ear shape, but you can make them squared off, or angled — whatever you’d like!

Step 1. Take your DRESS FRONT and LINING FRONT and match them up with right sides of the fabric together. Pin in place, and then sew around the edge of the LINING, attaching it to the DRESS FRONT. Use a straight stitch.

Repeat for the DRESS BACK and LINING BACK.

Step 2. Trim your seam allowances (if needed), and turn your dress FRONT and BACK right side out. Press the ties and neckline flat.

Step 3. With right sides together, pin your DRESS FRONT and DRESS BACK together. Since you’ve attached the lining, the order of the fabric will be lining-dress-dress-lining. Sew up the sides of the dress with a straight stitch.

Turn the dress right side out and press your side seams flat.

Step 4. Hem the dress to your desired length. I used a blind stitch hem (available on most sewing machines), but you can do a wide straight stitch if you’d like. (The blind hem stitch is much less visible on a solid, light colored fabric and looks more professional).

Press your hem flat, and you’re done!

    So cute! I want to try making a matching set for my daughter and I. Question – I’m guessing you cut the underarms and necklines a little deeper than a fitted tank dress and maybe added some width for a looser fit – Any suggestions for measuring that when making the pattern?

    what do you use to make your pattern page? Is this photoshop and you’re just drawing it? Im starting to collect quite a few patterns of my own and would like to save them in a format on my computer that i can come back and look at later. I hate having a bunch of pattern pieces to keep track of 🙁 Id like to draw mine out as you have and save them to come back to later

  5. So cute!! what a great little jumper dress! LOL thanks for the inspiration! :o)

  6. Such a beautiful day to manage a blog without visitors. I am saying people will consider ita good thing. The education is must before you even think about marriage. Hope you get it what I am trying to say here. I dont mean to offend anyone but I cant control myself.
