Today's post is by the lovely Regina who blogged for Crafty Bird not long ago about her experience with Jane Richmond's Elsie Cardigan pattern. Today she shares her thoughts on the super cute Oliver + S Bubble Dress pattern. Don't you just love that fabric? Be sure to jump over to her sweet blog, Cardigans and Kids for more inspiring projects.
The Oliver + S Bubble Dress pattern: I have been eying it since it's release quite awhile ago. Alas, it has buttons, worse than cute buttons, it needs button holes! Now, I can handle—most of the time—different sewing tasks that include elastic, snaps, even a zipper now and again, however, those button holes put me in a sewing conundrum so I really try to avoid them.
I'm here to say this dress is worth the button holes. It is as adorable in real life as on the pattern and there are only 3 buttons and button holes, and a clever plan with elastic and making the built-in cap sleeves.
Notes: I made the size 0-3 months with the scallop. I used muslin for the lining and a vintage sheet for the dress.
Thanks so much Regina!
Happy sewing everyone!
