playdate variations

Every time I look at the Oliver + S Flickr group I’m amazed at the new photos that have been posted by our customers. Such wonderful fabric choices! Such adorable children modeling the finished projects! Really, seeing your photos inspires me to sew and to create more patterns.

While browsing recently, I was fascinated to see the various interpretations on the Playdate Dress. I love the unique looks that result from fabric choices, especially for the yoke of the dress. A rich polka dot gives the dress a contemporary flair while stripes looks almost like pintucks or spectacular tailoring. Here are some wonderful examples of your work, more of which can be found on Flickr. Thank you for your inspiring sewing, everyone!

  2. Thanks for creating such a fabulous pattern. My daughter (in the first photo) has adored the dress since I made it for her last year. Only if she weren’t out growing it…I’ll be making a new one soon. Thanks again for sharing your creativity with us.
