    Reviewer: (Boulder, CO, USA)

    I love O & S patterns for their clear directions and accurate pieces. They are a pleasure to sew with and always yield a beautiful finished garment. Love the styling of this little dress.

    As usual,ove the style, love the drafting. Love the finished product. I did eliminate the v in the pockets and neck, as I was in a hurray and didn't want to rush these details. Oliver and s deliver again!


    5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 THIS PATTERN IS AWESOME!!!, 9/3/2014

    I am not an awesome seamstress, but this pattern is so well written that it makes me look like I know what I'm doing. I love the versitility.


    5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lovely pattern!, 9/2/2014

    Reviewer:

    This is an adorable, classic style, and the pattern is so clean and well-written! I have made the tunic top for my daughter, and can see myself making it again and again as she grows.


    5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Grows with her, 8/5/2014

    Reviewer: (Knoxville, TN, United States)

    This is one of those great patterns that is a dress at one age, morphing into a tunic/shirt as they grow. I made it when she was three, and she can still wear it at six. Also easy to modify to just use whatever patchwork of fabrics you like. My daughter got to ride in the Indy 500 Parade, so I used a variety of black and white prints in a horizontal patchwork, and didn't even bother with the pockets. A great framework for whatever you need.

    1. Please note that the first printing of this pattern contained an error in the cutting instructions for the small size package only (sizes 6M-4). The cutting instructions for piece #4, the Dress Bottom Panel, View A should read cut 4 instead of cut 2 on fold. This error has been corrected in subsequent printings.
    2. Please note that the yardage requirements printed on the pattern envelope in the first printing contained a minor error. As printed, the fabric requirements for View A, Fabric A will give you sufficient yardage to make the dress with a single-thickness hem.

      If you have already purchased yardage, you can follow the directions for the View B hem to make a single-thickness hem. Or you can purchase additional yardage in order to make the double-thickness hem as discussed in the instructions for View A. Refer to the chart below for the additional yardage needed to make the double-thickness hem:
