I have made another Oliver+S dress, this time for Emily. Before Christmas Oliver+S had a half price offer on all of their printed paper patterns and I just couldn’t resist the rather lovely School Photo Dress
I love the collar on this dress, a nice and neat roll. I’ve never been one for frills and flounces and as for ribbons, I’d rather….we’ll I’d rather do most things than sew a ribbon bow onto anything! So, this dress is right up my street, clean lines and a neat finish.
I followed the Oliver + S tutorial for sewing a chain button loop, however having watched the Great British Sewing Bee the other week I think I could have done a better job of it. It’s a bit loose and flimsy looking, but it does the job so I’m not about to un-pick it!
Emily loves the kangaroo pocket, perfect for keeping all sorts of little bits and pieces and warming up chilly hands!
Check out the lining! Emily’s favourite colour is Orange so I couldn’t resist picking out the orange of the butterflies with an orange lining.
Have you sewn the Oliver + S School Photo Dress? Leave a link in the comments, I’d love to see what you’ve made!
