    I absolutely love the end result, it turned out to be a beautiful dress! I am already trying out another view of this pattern. I wish it came in adult sizes! I would love to sew an icecream top for myself!

    Best blouse

    I bought this hoping for a simple spring/summer blouse pattern, and fell in love! The directions are clear, and the blouse looks professional and beautiful with little fuss. Usually I make 1-2 items from a pattern before trying to find something better, but I'm making 7 of these to start!

    Oliver +s is my first commercial pattern. I do not sew much, but when my daughter tried the dress on I was surprised, it was so simple yet elegant. I am not very good at English, but the pattern's instruction is very very clear to follow. I have learnt a lot from it. a little problem, my daughter's long hair sometimes caught up by the button. it would be nice if there is an alternative closure included in the pattern. anyway, I really like the pattern!

    Sweet, simple, and totally moreish - just like ice-cream! I made one of these for my youngest daughter, and her older sister loved it so much that I bought the larger size of the pattern for her as well. Just lovely.

  • Errata

    Please note that the following errata notices apply only to the printed version of this pattern. These issues have been fixed in the digital version of the pattern available now.

    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:

    4.  

     

    Determining Which Printing You Have

    As errata are discovered, they are marked for correction in subsequent printings of the pattern.

    To determine which printing of an instruction sheet or pattern sheet you have, look at the copyright box which appears on each. Toward the bottom of the box, there is a series of numbers.

    The lowest number you see there indicates which printing you have. For example, if the lowest number in the box on the instruction sheet is "2," you have an instruction sheet from the second printing. Any errors in the instructions mentioned for the first printing have been corrected in your version. If the lowest number in the box on the pattern sheet is "1," you have a copy of the pattern sheet from the first printing.

    Pattern sheets and instructions sheets can be printed separately, so be sure to check the errata notices for pattern pieces against the printing number on the pattern sheet and errata notices for instructions against the printing number on the instruction sheet.
