Over at Frances Suzanne Sewing sister's they are having a sewing series/contest called flip this pattern. The pattern chosen this month was Oliver + S Roller skate. I have already made two dresses for Sweet pea with this pattern and I am totally in love with it! Sweet pea's most worn dresses happen to be these two dress too. How could I not sew along this month?!?
I seen this dress over at Zara's. I love, love the lines and colors! So I made a Knock off PONTE DI ROMA DRESS for this month flip change.
I made the next size up for Sweet pea, a 4T, seeing how she has too many clothes that fit her right now. It's a tad big but that's ok. I took in the sides of the dress pattern in 1", added a peter pan collar and the 2+2 top sleeves to make this dress. To finish it off I made a band at the bottom of the dress by echoing the bottom 4"s of the dress.
I love the simple colors of this dress and to my surprise Sweet pea does too. It was such a shocker seeing how if it's not pink she usually doesn't have anything to do with it. It also might be me sewing for her baby brother more than for her.....
I used a purl button on the closer in the back. I though it made it nice a dressy for her. She has been saving this button for a about a year now so she was very happy for it to be added to a dress for her.
It is a fun dress too! Sweet pea had a hard time not acting silly for most of these photos. She wanted to do her own "modeling" .
Yep this girl has got it!
