I finished these two a while ago and never got around to posting the pictures. I *love* how they turned out!

This was my first experience sewing from an Oliver + S pattern and I have to say that it is love, love, love. I finished the main construction/sewing of the two dresses in two days! The pattern comes together like a dream and, I have to say, the challenging neck tie/placket were quite easy to put together thanks to the awesome instructions.

Sometimes it wears me out to have to make two of the same every time, but it’s so worth it. This fabric was lovely and perfect for the project: Michael Miller’s Children at Play, from fabric.com. I have some yardage left… Maybe shirts for the girls? I think I have just enough!

Here are pictures of some of my favorite details: love the finishing on the sleeves.

The placket is adorable, and that cute neck-tie completes the look of this dress so well.

Finally, I used blue and white buttons to finish it off, making reference to the playful pinwheels.

Ta-da!
