I have been waiting and waiting for this pattern to be available for a few months now, its from Oliver + S, one of my favorite pattern makers.
(yes, it was a crazy hair day)
Its one of the more challenging peices I have made, not hard, just more time consuming than I would have thought.
and that is because I tend to make easier patterns, or just "make up " a pattern as I go.
This particular dress, has a placket, which was intimitating to me, especially since 1/3 of the instructions were dedicated to making it alone. However, they were very clear and easy to read, and I was super pleased with the results.
I think next time I would use a different pattern of fabric. I love this corduroy, and I had it already, and since fall is upon us, it seemed appropriate. However some of the detail is lost in the pictures and can only been seen close up. (Placket, sleeve detail and belt loop finishing)
Not to mention that Parkey was totally distracted by a neighbor and just wanted to talk to her instead of smiling. But the dress is so fun and I am super pleased with it, I would love for their to be an adult version of this pattern for myself.
