Tilly went back to Kindy today and she wore her new oliver+s Book Report dress.
Its a lovely pattern to sew, all the 'bits' go together perfectly.
And it has pockets-secret pockets.
How awesome is that?

Oliver+s have this clever placement of the pattern pieces so there are minimal sheets to join.
After chatting with fellow oliver+s groupie about the fit I decided to draft the size 2 with the length of a size 4.
This took a bit of jiggling with the yoke pieces but it wasn't hard.
In a nutshell, I added two sizes to the length.
So the size 4 ended up being drafted on the size 12-18mnth line.
Matilda's Kindy uniform is encouraged, and the recommended attire is red or green polo top(house colours) and navy bottoms.
Well this is sort of it.
The hem is bound by some gorgeous cotton webbing printed with a measuring tape.
My gorgeous friend purchased it in Purl Soho (yes baby-baby, I am a-dropping names) for me.
The hessian knot buttons I picked up on eBay. I would give you a link but she seems to have closed down.
Its a super fit right now which is fine as she will only get 1 1/2 terms wear from it and then it will be for farm play.
I have already made this for the Twins.
And it is just as gorgeous on a big girl.
Isn't Liesl clever?
