spring inspiration round-up

Soon it will be time to put away those winter clothes and transition into spring. So I’ve gathered up a bunch of beautiful Oliver + S creations for you today to get you in the mood to sew for spring. I love to see finished examples of patterns before I start sewing, don’t you? Seeing what others made can really help get ideas flowing.

Up first is the talented Sharon who sewed this lovely Garden Party dress with smocking. It makes the perfect spring dress!

  1. Thanks for the feature! Hoping we didn’t “jinx the weather” with our raincoat – putting our area into an extreme drought right after sewing it. Thankful she’s gotten some wear out of it this winter :). . .

  2. Thank you for including my little girlie’s dress 🙂 I loved sewing it. Sadly she already grew out of it. Time for another? Dress, not a girlie haha
