    5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 I love this outfit!, 7/4/2013

    Reviewer: (Montréal, Québec, Canada)

    This outfit might look a teeny bit intimidating but it's lots of fun to make and versatile for the child. For the 3T I was able to squeeze all the main pieces for both the tunic and the dress onto a piece of lightweight quilting cotton 49" x 45". I made everything from stash and considered several different trim/facing fabrics. I ended up going with a dark blue that didn’t really match rather than a yellow that picked up some of the highlights, because I decided that high contrast was more important than exact colour matching. I was right. The graphic lines are striking and the different blues work together well. (For an example of what I'm talking about, I decided I liked the cover illustration for the pattern with the high of light yellow and dark red better than this lower-contrast version. http://oliverands.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2013/02/pinwheel-dress-and-tunic.jpg ) I had barely enough fabric, so in order to be able to lay out all the pieces to get them all to fit at the same time I traced and mirrored the pieces, cutting out doubles of pieces that needed to be cut twice. Many of the pieces look similar (flounces for the dress and flounces for the tunic) so I wrote the number of the pattern piece on a bit of masking tape and stuck it to the cut fabric pieces to identify them. Using the instructions to sew the straps in the dress was a real bear. I had to cut them out and redo them several times because the first time they were pointing in all directions. Aside from the straps, everything went together easily and perfectly. I usually take a long time to complete a project but I was able to make both the tunic and dress in a weekend and still had time to make a pair of Oliver & S Poppet Show shorts. (I had made the bias binding the previous weekend — is that cheating?) http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7376/9206309652_5430b26b0e_z_d.jpg http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7284/9206309568_4205ffe69d_z_d.jpg http://farm4.staticflickr.com/3819/9203590891_f91fe8b8cd_z_d.jpg


    5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Deliciously Sweet but Decidedly Smart , 7/3/2013

    Reviewer: (Tintinara, South Australia, Australia )

    A delightfully girly dress without being fussy. The pattern design works well with plains but handles a large scale print beautifully. The two pieces can be worn together as a layered frock, the slip dress alone or the tunic with shorts or leggings. I blogged a tutorial for the slip dress here. http://fiveandcounting-motherof5.blogspot.com.au/2013/03/pinwheel-slip-dress-tutorial.html Forget all the bad things you have read about PDF patterns. Oliver+s do them so well. All the smaller pattern pieces are printed on individual sheets and the larger pieces fit together so well.
