Here's what I spent a Sunday afternoon sewing up:
It's the Oliver + S school photo dress in a plaid printed cord. This is size 4, for my niece Anabear. She's in preschool these days so this should make a nice school dress for her. You can see on the front I sort of made an effort to match the plaid which almost worked. I didn't even try on the back, as I didn't have enough material to really wiggle around.
That's OK, it's a little kids dress. The dress went together really nicely, and the directions have you sew it all up with a really clean finish inside. It would be even neater if I'd used the pattern piece for the armhole binding, but zig zag is OK.
The way you sew the pocket into the front pieces is ingenious although I was convinced that it wouldn't quite work, it did. Hooray! And everything fit together perfectly, so no fighting with with any bits to fit together.
So this is actually the front runner pattern for the flower girl dresses, done up in blue silk. I thought a bit about the standard full-skirted poufy flower girl dresses for the girls, and I've sewn similar dresses to that style, like this year's Easter dresses. Really, I just couldn't get into it for a flower girl look, though. The front pocket on this dress was what sold me on these as flower girl dresses... can't you see them standing up at the ceremony with their hands tucked into the pockets? Adorable! ;)
