    4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dress review, 9/2/2014

    Reviewer: (Augusta, Ga, USA)

    The pattern is wonderful. The cuff on the sleeves was the only challenge and did not turn out as well as I expected


    4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beautiful, but sizing is tricky, 7/7/2014

    Reviewer: (TN, USA)

    I just finished this up for my almost two year old. I love it and I expect I will make several more. I read the reviews before I cut it out, so I measured my child carefully, including her thighs to make sure to make the right size. I made a size 2 for my 26 pound, 33 inch tall 22 month old. Her measurements on the Oliver and S size chart ranged from 12-18 month (waist and weight) to size 2 (height), so I thought the 2 would be a safe bet. The tunic is a bit large (great- room to grow!). The shorts fit, but I would prefer more ease or something. I don't think they will fit her for long. Next time I plan to make the size 3 shorts or use a smaller seam allowance all around. Definitely worth a second try. Also, Oliver and S has the best digital downloads. I have several of the paper patterns and am tempted to re-purchase them as digital. I like to print the instructions and bind them into a book. Makes it easy to refer to while sewing!


    4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Looks lovely, newborn tunic not worth the effort, 3/5/2014

    Reviewer: (Mount Waverley, VIC, Australia)

    So this is the second Oliver & S pattern that I have made. I was excited as it was one of the few patterns that had a newborn size, so I could make something for my 7 week old girl to wear "now". She is on the 50th percentile so literally "of average size for her age", and measures well for the 0-3 month size pattern. I made the shorts first, and they fit perfectly. The waist measurement is that of her waist (37") and is a squeeze to get on around her nappy. (I wouldn't dream of trying with her cloth nappies, only disp.) Having said that, they look superb on, and were pretty straight forward to make. I can see how they can be a summer wardrobe staple :) I will be making more for sure for many years!!! ( I may have to extend the back inseam for a cloth nappy and perhaps blend sizes for the waist) The Tunic/ Dress.... This is definitely where the higher scissor rating comes from. I made the Tunic as the dress pattern pieces were almost as long as my child, more like a christening gown length. I slowly worked my way through the bodice and collar, and at a few points actually looked at what I was sewing and thought "Oh I am so glad for the detailed instructions" as I couldn't tell what it was!! I again made the smallest size, and barely got the little cuffs through the sewing machine (and the overlocker, oh my!!) I used snaps instead of buttons, and am glad as I don't think I could have done button holes on the tiny cuffs. If doing buttons I would probably make the button holes before the cuffs are sewn on. Regardless, the instructions are great (although I did read a few parts a few times) and the Tunic is soo cute!! The finished Tunic is very long (more like a dress), and the cuffs cannot be done up once on. The neck opening is the size of my daughters neck, so the top button has to be open to be worn. I am going to save this pattern (Tunic Dress) for an older age, and I think I may again blend between sizes. It is a great pattern and both pieces look great, I would suggest that you measure the child you are sewing for before you begin though :)


    5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shorts-Yes, But don't forget the Dress?, 9/18/2013

    Reviewer: (Tintinara, SA, Australia)

    Its a beautiful dress. I made it for my daughter to wear to kindy and it makes me smile every single time I see it on her. This pattern is a little trickier (then the others) and its not one to rush but it is so worth the effort to sew. If you are nervous, sew along with me. http://fiveandcounting-motherof5.blogspot.com.au/2013/02/a-puppet-show-for-kindy-part-one.html I found there was plenty of bias strip for the hem so double check that before cutting your precious Liberty. The shorts are cute and very popular. I really like the look of the flat front version illustrated on the packet front so I did a little tute for that. http://fiveandcounting-motherof5.blogspot.com.au/2013/02/puppet-show-shorts-tutorial.html A classic little tunic and shorts which I think would look so cute as a newborn set for a baby boy too. Imagine it in tartan for a wedding or pure white as a naming day ensemble. The internet sewing world was a happier place when these shorts were released as a digital pattern.

    These shorts are a summer staple at our house! So, so cute! I have only made the dress once, but this just reminds me I need to make it again! Such a cute, classic look. I found Oliver + S just after this pattern was released digitally and it was the first one I purchased. Personally I prefer paper patterns but as it was impossible to find any longer I purchased the pdf, I was so impressed with it! Oliver + S digital patterns are literally the best I have ever seen.

  • Please note that all errata have been corrected in the digital version of this pattern. These notes apply only to the printed version of the pattern.

    1. The first printed version of this pattern contained an error on pattern piece 15. You should trim 1 1/2" from one end of piece #15, the Bias Leg Trim, maintaining the same angle as the original piece. This adjustment should be made for all sizes as in the illustration shown below. This error has been corrected in the second printing of the pattern and in the digital version that is being sold now on our website.

    2. The final circumference of the leg opening, once adjusted and sewn, should measure as follows:

      0-3M 3-6M 6-12M 12-18M 18-24M 2T 3T 4 5
      8 3/4" 9 5/8" 10 3/8" 11" 11 3/4" 12 1/8" 12 7/8" 13 5/8" 14 3/8"
