    This was my very first Oliver + S pattern to sew, and I loved it! The directions were very complete, and the finished product looks so professional. We made a few changes to the original look. You can see our finished product here: http://skirtfixation.com/2014/07/oliver-s-croquet-dress/

    I made view A of this dress in a lawn fabric and turned out super cute! We live in a hot climate and it has served us well. Lots of compliments on it!

    How cute is this dress? I have made both views, both adorable. The dress is a generous fit so take your little girl chest measurement before drafting and add length if needed. I made view B in a silky satin and blogged a tute here http://fiveandcounting-motherof5.blogspot.com.au/2012/08/you-cant-make-that-pattern-up-in-that.html I made view A for another daughter http://fiveandcounting-motherof5.blogspot.com.au/2012/09/croquet-dress-game-two.html I love the way Liesl designs a pattern that works on tiny tots right up to early teens.


  • 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.

    Errata

    1. In the first printing of this pattern, the instructions contained a minor error. On page 3, in step 4 under the section "Prepare the Front (View B)," the second sentence should read, "Pin and stitch the opposite (unfolded) long edge...."
