    Good instructions, but I made the inside of the yoke more finished. I like the short sleeved version, but the cuffed sleeve falls at an awkward place on the arm. LOVE the pockets.

    Having read the glowing reviews, my expectations were high....instructions were okay. Felt the design could have gone one step further and made the bodice lining more finished so the seams were hidden inside the facing. Overall, felt the style was was just okay. Bought a second pattern which has yet to be down-loaded. Will see how that one goes. Not sure I would purchase this pattern if I had to do it over again.

    I am a grandmother who made clothing for my 3 children and am now having fun sewing for my 3yr old granddaughter who lives overseas. Not being able to measure her up in person, I made a size 3T based on the size guide and finished measurements, and it fitted her perfectly. I will go up to size 4 for the next one. This pattern was a delight to make up, the instructions were clear and easy to follow, and everything went together perfectly, even the welt pockets, and the sleeves were a breeze to fit. The difficult thing was choosing what fabric combination to use, with so many creative options (I had searched the internet for inspiration from images posted by other dressmakers!) I love this pattern and my granddaughter loves her dress. Thank you.

    I just love this pattern! I am a home taught seamstress and love to sew things that are quick and simple for my kids. This one fits that criteria, plus it is so fun to personalize. I made one with knit & added Pom Poms! Would highly recommend this pattern to anyone.

    I am a self taught home sewer,sewing for my girls thirty years ago and now sewing for my sweet granddaughter. This was my first O&S pattern and it came out great. Easy directions, and even an online tutorial to help! Couldn't be more pleased with the result and my daughter said she liked it better than any other dress I have sewed for her and I have made quite a few.

    I love how quickly this dress comes together. As always the instructions are clear and concise. The real fun in making this dress/top is picking out your fabric! It provides such a wonderful opportunity to highlight a special fabric. My two girls love it when they peek into the pockets to find "secret, fancy pockets."

    I've just recently purchased the next size up. I didn't want to ponder sewing projects in 2016 without planning out a new Hide-and-seek.

    Fun pattern
    Reviewed by (Verified Buyer) on 11/19/2015
    As always Oliver +S comes through with a winner. Plenty of room to get a little creative and a little crazy with the top/dress. And you can make it fun, cool, exotic, dressy or casual. I have made it fun and not too girly girl as that is how my grand daughter prefers it. But I can Also see it in a soft Liberty of London print with ribbons and looking very feminine.

    This is a gorgeous pattern and goes together really well. The fit is loose but perfect for play so my daughter is very happy to wear it! I did make an alteration to change the button position from the back to the front so my daughter can do it up herself, but this was just my preference. I highly recommend this pattern!

    At first glance this pattern didn't appeal to me when published. However, when it started appearing on numerous blogs, I took another look. Gail's (Probably Actually) lovely rendition caught my eye so much I mimicked her fabric choices!
    Like all Oliver and S patterns, the directions are easy to follow. This pattern can highlight a special fabric in a unique way and the welt pockets add another great feature to a simply styled dress.
    I'll be making this one again!

    I have made this in size 4 and am about to make it again in a beautiful Liberty Lawn called "Going to the Zoo" as Aurelia is crazy about animals. I have also made the Seashore Sundress, Carousel Dress and After School Shirt and Pants.
    A joy to make - the patterns are great.

    Stylish frock
    Reviewed by on 05/14/2015
    I used this pattern for my daughter's school summer dress and will use it again. She looks so chic in it. There are a lot of seams so it took me a while but it was worth it. The dress seems a little short to me even though my daughter matches the height given for her size so I'll add a couple of inches next time. It would be great if you could give amounts in metric for your European customers.

    Reviewed by on 05/01/2015
    The dress was easy to sew and the directions were very helpful. The only problem I had was with the top stitching between the yoke and top of the welt. There is about an inch where the seam allowance does not go under the top line of top stitching (no support for the stitches). I re-sewed the top stitching 3 or 4 times and it is still not perfect. Perhaps I did not understand the instructions (?) The dress is lovely otherwise. Stars should by 4 1/2

    Hide and Seek offers so many fun design possibilities. I made it for my three year old friend and intend to make one each for my granddaughters, age 7 months and 8 years. It is a flattering and comfy little dress.

    Reviewed by on 01/18/2015
    I recently made the hide and seek dress. I made it in two different sizes . It was easy to follow it turned out so cute. The only suggestion I have is that the picture shows a fringe on the sample and the pattern doesn't make any mention of that . If you want to add that you just have to remember to add it yourself. It's a classy and sweet dress.

    Very satisfying to sew.
    Reviewed by on 12/29/2014
    Despite the welt pockets, this tunic (I haven't yet made it in dress length) is a quick sew -- I think I made three in the first week that I got it. The pockets are a big hit with my 5yo girl, plenty roomy for treasures. The fit is roomy and very comfortable while the yoke, which uses very little fabric, is a perfect spot for featuring something done by hand or something precious of which you have only a bit. You could get a lot of looks from this depending on the trim and fabric and buttons you chose, from very casual to quite elegant. One version I made has people ask me if I bought it at Anthropologie nearly every time she wears it.

    Edgestitching makes everything look nicer
    Reviewed by on 11/07/2014
    I bought this pattern to make a black witch dress for my daughter to be Kiki from Kiki's Delivery Service for Halloween. I used the long sleeves without cuffs and didn't use a contrast fabric. The shape of the dress is perfect for the character, and adorable on my daughter. She is wearing 4T and 5 size clothes (100s in Hanna Andersson) and I made her the size 5 dress for an oversized look. The instructions were well written. I recommend printing them 2 to a page to save paper, the font is still readable. There were lots of details to make a nice piece of clothing and not just a quick sewing project that looks homemade. I'm searching through fabric.com to find the right fabrics to make more of these dresses.
