It's all appliques - sewn on - with a little bit of machine embroidery around the hem.  Here is a close-up.

Oh wow! I LOVE that movie so much! Brittany Murphy is so talented... and her clothes in Uptown Girls were STUNNING! Your jumper is adorable! I love all the appliques--especially the monarch butterfly!

I love the jumper you made! Such a clever and well executed piece! I actually think I remember them saying on the dvd that the jumper was actually a vintage piece from someone's mother? The costume designer wanted to recreate the jumper their mother had, but instead just used it... or perhaps that was another piece of clothing.. Anyways, beautiful jumper!

As much as I am loathe to admit I watched Uptown girls, let alone any special features.... I do remember where the jumper came from. It belonged to the costume designer's sister when she was like 9 or 10. And it fit Brittney Murphy just perfectly
I guess that means this is also a response to the post above asking if Murphy looks like a skeleton in the photo...

Anyway, the jumper was apparently made by the costume designer's babysitter when she and her sister were kids, and if you look closely you can see her sisters name on it. Weird that they would keep it all of those years, cool or not.
How much storage do people have in their damn houses?
