love saltwaters too, but my girl (newly minted 7) doesn’t like the buckles. she loves see kai run sandals – they are cute, wear really well, and usually have a velcro strap. both mama and kids (both boy and girl) approved!
nicole, you’re perfectly helpful! it’s so great to have these forums to have input. seriously, even a “i’m not sure” input is better than nothing. so thank you for being so helpful. the support found here in the forums help make the o+s patterns (in addition to the patterns being wonderful themselves) a true pleasure to sew.
so the stitching is there to help maintain shape? i’m leaning towards not stitching – i really like the uninterrupted shoulder on this. having said that, your dresses are quite lovely!
