Oliver + S Croquet Dress in Cloud 9

22 Apr

The latest Oliver + S patterns arrived in the mail this week.  Using organic cotton from Cloud 9′s Across the Pond Collection, I made view B of the Croquet Dress.

H. loved the dress so much, she wanted to wear it before I finished it.  You can see in the photo below, the back closure where the button should be folded over.

Here is the completed version with thread chain complete and vintage button sewn on.

For the waistband and bow, I used a reproduction William Morris print.  The green matched the wings on the dragon flies.

I like the dress both with and without the bow.  To give H. some options,  I didn’t sew the bow onto the waistband.  Instead, I just attached it using a safety pin.

    Well, she is a smart girl, that H, with good taste like her mama’s. That dress is gorgeous!

    Oh i love it! Great fabrics. I started cutting out the pattern for a croquet to sew during KCWC but now I think it might be a bit too much to tackle this week. Can’t wait to make it, though!
