Pinwheel Dress + Tunic

5 Mar

Every season, I get so excited when the new Oliver + S patterns get released.  There are so many different options in each little O+ S package.  Take the new Pinwheel Dress + Tunic, you get three different looks with this one pattern.

I had a bunch of leftover red bias tape from this sample, so I wanted to choose that would work well with a little pop of red.  I choose two Modern Workshop prints to make the slip dress and tunic for H. For the slip dress, I choose to use two different prints for the bodice and for the ruffle. That decision was based on the fact that I didn’t have enough fabric in the same print, but I do like the result.

This will be a great simple dress for H. to wear in the summer, but for now, we are still in layering mode.

H. wore the tunic on top of the slip dress this weekend while she performed a little dance routine with her friends.


She loves the twirl factor with the double flounce.

For H.’s 6th birthday, we threw a pinwheel themed party.  H. was excited to see the Holly paper doll on the cover the  Pinwheel Dress/Tunic pattern.  Perhaps another pinwheel themed party is in order.
