    I’ve got a few patterns on their way to me but UPS is just too slow for my short attention span! So I downloaded and printed the Popover pattern and whipped one up in about 40 minutes. I learned a couple of things:

    1) My skinny little girl is a size 4 in length but size 3 around. Good to know for the next one (and there will be MANY next ones)

    2) It is amazing how easy it is to make this pattern look really “finished.” I frenched the side seams because.. well, I’ll be honest, it’s because my mother-in-law is coming tomorrow and she’ll see this dress and I want her to approve. Shallow, I know. I also took the same ribbon I used for the straps and slipped it under the yoke as a trim and it looks amazing!

    I’ve got four other dress patterns incoming and I think I’ll pick up the Sandbox pants as well. Of course after looking through the Flickr group what I *really* want is the Puppet Show shorts but it’s looking like I might win the lottery before that happens. šŸ™‚

    Anyway, good experience, can’t wait to make more!

    The popover dress was my first o + s pattern too! I don’t know how much sewing you’ve done before but these patterns tend to spoil you for other brands. I have a tote FULL of patterns that I just don’t use anymore since I started using these.

    Ah, I remember the feeling of my first O+S, also a Popover! Congrats, looking forward to seeing your creations. Be aware that the flickr group is an addiction all its own.

    Oh here’s to sewing more O + S patterns. You will love the ones on their way and the Sandbox pattern will be sure to become a favourite (just made a pair of PJ pants using this pattern.)
