Roxy Jumper - Indie Stitch Box

I am subscribed to the Indie Stitch Subscription Box, a monthly service and it is fun.

Let's talk about Indie Stitch  a home delivery service which is monthly and includes everything you need in the box to make the project.  Plus a fun extra, too.  One month it was a granola bar, this month a package of hot chocolate. Also, you get a sewing notion of some type most months.  

Prior to the box shipping, Indie Stitch emails you for fabric selection options, you get to pick first and second choice. 

I am behind three boxes, so playing catch up.  I went with December's box first, it was the easiest one.

The pattern is Sew Over It Roxy Jumper one that I have not made before.  I reached out to an Instagram friend who had made it before and she gave me some pointers.  First off it is short, so I added two inches and it is close fitting,  I cut a 12, grading out to a 14 at the bust.

The fabric is a very nice knit with a cute design.

The Roxy Jumper was quick to make and I made Version 3 with a yoke and gathers at the front.  The sleeves are bishop style with this version, I went with the regular sleeves.  Thought I would wear it layered with a sweater and the slim sleeves would work better.

I didn't love this top on me, tighter than my comfort level and with the two inches added still too short.  I passed this top onto one of my daughters, I think she will like it and wear it more than I will.  This daughter is about 2 inches shorter and smaller than I am, so it should work for her.
