Ready? Let’s start!
The lovely Kathy has made a beautiful cardi dress version with long sleeves, cuffs and regular waistband using a beautiful flowery jersey and contrast bands.
Now, for a cardigan one! Irene has made a super cool baseball inspired version with welt pockets, contrast fabric and snaps!
Another lovely cardigan was made by lovely Emma in a perfect black jersey and colourful button snaps (perfect if you fear buttonholes 🙂 )!
The beautiful Chantelle has opted for a long sleeve version of the dress in this oh, so pretty! polka dot jersey 🙂 And! she has also stitched the perfect bound pockets (you can also opt for inseam).
The awesome Emily opted for a stripy cardigan version perfect for layering and to throw onto t-shirts and a pair of years.
The lovely Wendy went for another version with stripes and a mustard contrasting band. Love the detail of the colourful snaps!
Elisa is a great Spanish seamstress and she tested the lower scoop neck version of Pumpkin in this super interesting fabric. Very floaty and comfy!
Ella‘s version is just the cutest! I love the contrast between the stripes and the flowers of the bands. She chose long sleeves and a ruffle waistband.
I always love Akram pics so much! She is always fun and positive 🙂 Here she is wearing a dress version without sleeves in this burnt orange jersey that I need to get for myself!
Laura from Cotton Reel Studio has made a great version in navy that will work so well in her wardrobe! You can see how she has also paired Pumpkin with jeans and it works so well!
I absolutely love Bàrbara‘s version of the Pumpkin Cardigan in this super pretty jersey and! with added cuffs and waistband in contrasting material. And look at those pockets!
When I saw Meredith‘s version I thought (apart from wow!), this could work for Spring and Summer as well! Go for a lighter jersey and voilà!
Rachel and Nikki, the Stitch Sisters, have made the coolest versions! Look at these two amazing Pumpkin dresses that scream 60s and Mods! all over. I absolutely love them!
And last we have the lovely Laura wearing a dress version as a long cardigan! I love how it looks with leggings and a blouse.
