    I’m choosing fabric for a few things . . . oh utter happiness!!!!

    I’d love to use some voile, but I’ve not sewn with it before. Would it be too soft for this pattern?

    I’m planning on making this for Autumn/Winter and layering it over a long sleeve t-shirt and tights. Dreadful idea?

    Should I just wait until next spring????

    I would wonder if it was a little soft to hold nice pleats, all you can do is try !

    When are the patterns due out? It must be soon!

    Well, I am worryingly obsessed. Last night I dreamt that I was in the Oliver and S studio talking about lining a skirt – it turned out the Oliver and S studio was shared with a new york gangster scary club. The other half was full of poll dancers and gangsters having lap dances. Liesl seemed completely fine about it. I had quite an interesting chat about the sail boat skirt!!!!

    Did you have cheese for supper?

    Are you pregnant, sounds like a hormone dream to me!

    No def NOT pregnant!

    We’ve been watching the box set of Weeds. Probably explains the drug dealer element!

    I’ve been having a lot of weird dreams lately. This was a good one!

    We’re about to start work pulling our house apart and I think it might be unsettling me a bit.

    Hi Robyn

    I have just purchased some divine voile for summer frocks – so lovely. But I’m thinking it might not go so well with the Birthday Party dress which is all about the structure and the pleat and how much like a well behaved child from another era your (in reality very poorly behaved) little girl looks. I used something quite similar to a voile for the 2+2 blouse in a short sleeve and that worked very well and I would have thought some of the more flowing dresses like the swingset tunic might work nicely too.

    I think it would be possible but you wouldn’t get the crisp look normally associated with the birthday party dress (it would help if you sewed in the pleats though).

    A while back Liesl showcased a birthday party dress on her blog made from double gauze. That’s even softer than voile and it was a successful dress. The post is here: http://www.oliverands.com/blog/2009/07/double-gauze.html

    Thanks everyone. I think I’ll leave the voile for now and stick with some lovely cotton. Now, I’m off to bed and hoping for a quiet night. No twins waking up. No dreams about the O and S lap dancing club!!!!

    Just in case anyone is wondering, I am here in the Oliver + S studio right now and there are neither scary gangster men nor pole dancers here with me. Believe me, it would be a much more interesting place if there were. But there aren’t.

    Thanks for sharing the dream littlebirdy. We had a good laugh over it. Here’s to hoping that tonight’s dreams are a less surreal for you!

    Tee hee. All dull last night! Just a little girl with a bad cough. Quite disappointing really!
