spring dress round-up

Today I wanted to show you some interesting things others have done with Oliver + S patterns. I’ve rounded up some pretty amazing creations. Here are over a dozen girl dresses for you today.

We always love to see photos of the Oliver + S clothing you make. Don’t forget to post your photos in the Oliver + S Flickr group and to tag your Instagram photos with #oliverands, so you can share your creations with other appreciative seamstresses.

Oliver + S dress patterns

Let’s begin with the new Cartwheel Wrap Dress, shall we? First we have Meagan who sewed her daughter’s Easter dress in iridescent dupioni. I love Katrien’s version with stripes going in different directions.

Laine made two in floral fabrics. And An sewed one in a lovely mustard yellow floral print.

Next let’s move onto the Girl on the Go Dress. Trine made one in size 14, changing the shape of the ties a bit and moving them up closer to her daughter’s natural waist. Susie sewed one as an Easter dress in size 12.

    Where is the best place to shop online for teen cotton knits, such as that in the girl on the go dress in your email. I’ve searched online at Mood Fabrics and other online sources, but I don’t see any knits that are geared to young teens. Can you please advise. Thank you.

      I do a lot of shopping for cotton knits, so I loved all of the suggestions that Liesl had on the blog last month in this post: https://oliverands.com/community/blog/2018/03/fabric-ideas-for-the-girl-on-the-go-pattern.html

      I’ve seen those brands on Fabric.com, Fabricworm and Hawthorne Threads, and I’ve also found that Raspberry Creek Fabrics has a lot of great fabrics in the young-teen friendly category, too.
