Oliver+s birthday party dressoliver+s playdate dress in swiss cotton


Little girls are so fun to dress and they are even more fun to sew for! Sometimes I feel guilty because I never make my son anything.  In 2010, I vow to change that, and make T some mommy made clothes.  

Last spring I found the cutest pattern company oliver+s, I think at this point I own almost all the patterns that they make, and over the holidays I will be making many more of their creations for M and T.  Here are the 2 that I have made so far... one was for M's first day of school and the other is for her holiday concert on Friday! I found this beautiful striped swiss cotton at Fabric corner in Arlington.

The Oliver+s patterns are so simple to use and the directions are easy to follow. I made both these dresses, start to finish, in under a day.

Tomorrow, I am going to work on adding sleeves to the birthday party dress and making it in a beautiful light blue silk, from Fabric Corner in Arlington, I found for M's Christmas dress.  I'll let you know how it works out!  I'll also update with pictures of M in the playdate dress.  Happy holidays!

I love the party dress you made for your daughter. The brand has children's clothing sewing patterns that are easy to follow. Their pattern designs are simple with classic but quirky details. wholesale shirts
