Popover Sundress

5 Jul

H.’s birthday is coming up at the end of this month. As soon as I saw the Oliver and S Popover Sundress (published in Sew Hip), I knew I wanted to make this for her 4th birthday dress.   The shoulder ties remind me of the first birthday dress I made for H. when she turned 2.

Since our July is packed with visits and trips, I was able to find a free evening and sew the dress.  I used Zinnia Path by Michael Miller for the main part of the dress, medium brown ric rack for the trim, and a polka dot print for the yoke and ties. I loved the way the dress turned out, and I couldn’t wait until H.’s birthday to give it to her.  I’m pretty bad at keeping surprises. H. wore it yesterday for the 4th of July.

    Oh Jeanne,
    Another masterpiece. That fabric is great with her dark hair.
    No wonder you could not wait to give it to her!

    This is just so, so beautiful. It inspires me to give an Oliver + s dress a try. I love the colors you chose.
