H. has yet another dress for back to school. I was lucky enough to get an advance copy of the fall/winter Oliver and S patterns and made view A of the Jump Rope Dress.
One of the many things I love about the Oliver and S patterns is that I feel like I learn something new every time I use one. I still consider myself somewhat of a beginner sewer (even though I have been sewing for a number of years), so the wonderful tips and hints that are sprinkled throughout the patterns are like little pearls of wisdom for me. I must say that these patterns have given me so much confidence in my sewing ability.
For this dress, I used navy blue and white polka dot cotton fabric and square shell buttons. I love these buttons and used them for the first Birthday Party Dress I made. I wish I had more. Hoping H. will be able to wear this dress for a while, I made it in a size 4, but the length is in size 5.
I love all the little details in this dress pattern. I would love to make another one without the sash and the belt loops. The drop waist is just so cute.
I have fabric for view B of the dress cut and ready to go. I think this will be my last item to sew for H.’s back-to-school wardrobe.
The fall/winter patterns go on sale next week, so be sure to grab this one!
