    Reviewer: (Tintinara, SA, Australia)

    This is no run-of-the-mill play dress. Beautifully cut and it fits together perfectly. Think of those lovely fitting shift dresses that are worn so effortlessly, that is what you have here. Once again Liesl has designed a pattern that works equally well on little girls as their older sisters. I made up the 12 for my 11 year old niece in a printed denim. The empire line bodice is very flattering and comfortable but the sleeves have an elegant slimness that appeals to her fussy pre-teen tastes. http://www.flickr.com/photos/motherof5/11699077215/in/set-72157633181194697/ (Modelled here by my 14 year old daughter) The back and neck facings give a sturdy finish and the pockets are a perfect height. A very enjoyable and satisfying sew.

    I have done this pattern four times already. Two for each one of my little girls... I´ve used flanell, quilting cotton, sweatshirt fabric and nicki. The dress/tunic is easy to put together and doesn´t take too much fabric. For my 1 year old I managed to make the tunic with 50 cm and for the 3 year old 75 cm. I am very happy with the results and the little ones seem confortable and look adorable.

    Reviewer: (Brighton, MI, USA)

    I recently made the leggings included in this pattern and since my granddaughter lives 3 hours away it’s tricky to get the right fit when she's not here to try things on. I was thrilled to learn that they fit perfectly; I followed the directions exactly to fit her waist and my daughter measured a pair of leggings she has that were the right length. When I was done they looked “store bought” which certainly can't be said for other commercial patterns which seem to have way too much bulk around the body for the leggings to fit right. I LOVE all the Oliver + S patterns and have purchased ~16 + Little Things to Sew. I love the way the clothes fit and the instructions are phenomenal. The tips are always useful and I’ve learned something new with each pattern. I’ve been sewing for 47 years and thought I pretty much knew it all so it’s really nice to learn new things. I can't wait to start on the tunic!


    1. In the first printing of this pattern, there was an error in pattern piece 2 in the small size range only. The piece as printed is too wide. To fix it, follow the diagram below or print out a revised pattern piece as provided.
