Owlish bubble dress

Could this pattern be any more perfect?


I've been admiring the garments made with the Oliver+S patterns (and have quite a few in the stash). The bubble dress is actually quite simple to make up. I just needed to find two whole afternoons and some patience to sew it up.


'Cos I just knew that hurrying the sewing will just ruin this cute dress. (Fabric is a cotton voile from Tessuti and some plain cotton voile for the lining)

The kiddo's given me the thumbs up. Methinks this will be her fave summer romp-around frock.


And its great for building sand forts.


Cheerio, bloggy peeps!

Eeeek! That's just adorable!!! You're so lucky you have a little girl to sew for -- and I love it when I see people with little girls enjoying making their clothes!!!

Aahhh the Hoo Hoo print! It's the first time I've seen it made up.

Made up in this dress is sweet.
