And easy too.
Time will tell if it passes the test though.
When I showed my daughter this Oliver + S Book Report dress pattern when it first came out, she didn't care for it.
Outwardly I heaved a deep sigh.
Inwardly I knew I was going to make it.
Digging through my stash which incidentally is pretty much all over the sewing room floor these days, I came up with some blue and off white leafy fabric and paired it with blue poly/cotton.
"If she doesn't like this dress at all" I said to myself "at least I didn't use some treasured fabric."
But I like it.
I like how it buttons up at the shoulders and the dress front folds over the yoke back.
I like the fun pockets that are big and deep. Perfect for little treasures.
I like the pleats on the front and back.
I like that the dress can be colour blocked....or not.
And I like that it can be worn as a dress or tunic.
I have tunic in mind so just as soon as I can, I'm going to the fabric store to buy some stretch lace fabric to make leggings to wear with this dress. Similar to the ones below.
I made size 4.
Note to self: fingers crossed she likes it because I want to make more.
