    I have avoided this pattern as it only comes in digital form, but I was able to purchase a new paper copy. I love the outcome of the pattern but found the edgestitching around the neckline challenging. I am a perfectionist and had to redo it several times to make it perfect. I found Nicole's tutorial online with some helpful hints and pressed forward (Thank you Nicole) I love the result. It is a darling outfit. My new granddaughter is only 5 days old and has a closet of Oliver + S outfits waiting to be worn.

    This gorgeous little number is the essence of classic styling. It is easy to wear but definitely not sloppy. The sweet ties are so pretty but you can easily swop them to a button closure http://fiveandcounting-motherof5.blogspot.com.au/2011/06/too-much-22-adorablenessis-that-word.html I adore the blouse made in plain white. http://fiveandcounting-motherof5.blogspot.com.au/2013/07/more-farm-clothes-or-yes-i-think-my.html I posted a full tute her if you would like a peep http://fiveandcounting-motherof5.blogspot.com.au/2012/07/221-sweet-blouse.html I also have a skirt tute here http://fiveandcounting-motherof5.blogspot.com.au/2011/06/22seriously-cute.html and another version here http://fiveandcounting-motherof5.blogspot.com.au/2011/06/22-revisited.html I would love to play around with the front gathers and make a bonnie baby boy top. Its lovely and now its back as a PDF, there is no excuse not to make it.

  • Determining Which Printing You Have

    As errata are discovered, they are marked for correction in subsequent printings of the pattern. To determine which printing of an instruction sheet or pattern sheet you have, look at the copyright box which appears on each. Toward the bottom of the box, there is a series of numbers.

    The lowest number you see there indicates which printing you have. For example, if the lowest number in the box on the instruction sheet is "2," you have an instruction sheet from the second printing. Any errors in the instructions mentioned for the first printing have been corrected in your version. If the lowest number in the box on the pattern sheet is "1," you have a copy of the pattern sheet from the first printing.

    Pattern sheets and instructions sheets can be printed separately, so be sure to check the errata notices for pattern pieces against the printing number on the pattern sheet and errata notices for instructions against the printing number on the instruction sheet.

    Errata

    The following errata notes apply only to the earlier printed version of this pattern. These errors have all been corrected in the current digital version.

    1. The notches on the short sleeve pattern piece (piece #8) are placed incorrectly. Use the notches to begin and end the gathering stitches, but note that they will not match up with the armhole when you pin the sleeve to the armhole. The sleeve will still fit if you disregard the notches on the sleeve when you pin and stitch the sleeve into position.
    2. A few pattern pieces were incorrectly identified in the cutting layout in the first printing of the instructions. The correct labels are as follows.

    3. The skirt hip finished measurement chart on the size 4-8 pattern envelope is incorrect. It should read as follows:

      Size 4 5 6 7 8
      Skirt Hip 25 1/2" 26 1/2" 27 1/2" 28 1/2" 29 1/2"

    4. The finished measurements table on the back of the pattern envelope contains an incorrect column heading. The middle column should be labeled "18-24 M" instead of "12-24 M."
