I just packed away the first Oliver and S Playdate Dress I made for H. two years ago since is it now too small (EIK, where did the time go?). I have been wanting to make another one H. can wear to school since last year. I finally was able to get around to it this week. I think my favorite detail of this dress is the hidden one: the side pockets. Perhaps I am just projecting my love of pockets onto my daughter, but I think she enjoys having a little wearable storage space too.
For this version, I used chambray for the main part of the dress, leftover polka dot fabric from this dress for the yoke and facing hem, navy for the trim, and vintage buttons.
