Loving this new Line

Many of you might know Lisette as the mastermind behind Oliver & S . Amazing patterns with amazing, well written instructions that help you become a better seamstress. I've loved both of the patterns I've attempted and think they are well worth the extra cost. The patterns themselves are more durable than your basic Mcalls or simplicity patterns. The instructions are well thought out and written in a way that you can't mess up. And like I said, they seem to be written to teach you along the way.

That being said, I have anticipated the release of some adult sized patterns. So far there are just 4 out and this one I think is my favorite. I think I'm going to have to attempt it. Over at Purl Bee they've stitched up in some Liberty of London lawn fabric. That would be heavenly to make a dress out of. I think my favorite is the navy helena's party. The only drawback; the $35 per yard cost. I'm trying to rationalize it with the fact that a new dress would cost about that much at a nice store, but it probably won't happen.

Best Uniform Dress Ever

I never did post about this dress and since a lot of people seem to come here looking for uniforms, I thought I would go ahead and include it. This dress was made from a light weight navy blue poplin out of my favorite Oliver & S pattern

I have loved how this dress has turned out every time, but this one is my favorite. The poplin was perfect for this dress and it washed so well. Sophia said it was super comfortable as well. I wish I had a better picture of the dress. I'll have to try for one before she outgrows it.
