    Can't go wrong...

    This pattern goes together perfectly - of course. The size is spot on. The yoke design lends itself to all kind of embellishment - lace, piping, those special buttons, embroidery, whatever. Or none - it's still beautiful. Also, it's great as an in-between season dress because of the 3/4 length sleeves. Seriously, you can't go wrong with this pattern!

    Pattern was not easy to figure out. I am a seasoned seamstress and it was difficult. In fact, only used collar and adapted to another pattern.love the look!

    Would you like a Playdate?

    The answer would have to be, 'Yes,please'! I adore this dress. It is such a gorgeous mix of old world charm and well cut modern style. I blogged a complete tute here http://fiveandcounting-motherof5.blogspot.com.au/2011/10/time-for-playdate.html . Some girls find it a little firm over a toddler size head but I offer a few suggestions on making the opening larger in my blog post. A very easy fix, even if you have finished the dress. I am all ways amazed at Liesl's skill in designing clothes that work well on an infant but translate to an older sibling as well. http://www.flickr.com/photos/motherof5/4801829602/in/set-72157625295306988 The yoke can be trimmed or left plain. Piped in a contrast or made in self fabric for a contemporary look. The classic white yoke is my favourite. I even had a go at lining it http://fiveandcounting-motherof5.blogspot.com.au/2011/10/sewn-with-love-lined-playdate-dress.html (There have been other methods explained, check out the o+s forum for tips) A lovely girls dress, another lovely pattern that I am so glad to see released as a digital pattern.

    One of my favorites

    It's hard to pick a favorite O&S pattern, but this one is definitely a contender! It is a surprisingly quick and enjoyable sew. I love how the back opening in the yoke is constructed, and I always use a little elastic cord loop in place of a fabric button loop. My daughters like the pockets, too.

    This dress is adorable. It has turned out great every time I have made it. It has really practical in seam pockets for a little girl. Both mother and daughter approved!
