What a luscious dress! Gorgeous fabric and love the buttons.

I've been attempting to sew all of my O+S patterns for some time now, but can't seem to get to the end!


This is just gorgeous. I love the combination of the two fabrics and oh those buttons!


The fabrics and buttons are lovely together.


Love it. Mum has just made a very similar (in fact it may be a knock-off) Kwiksew dress for the girls. We didn't do the buttons all down the back!


Thanks! I haven't bought any new patterns for a while, so it might be a good chance to try and get on top of them - but I need to do an audit and work out just how many there are left to try.



Thank you! I love the fabrics too, it was such a nice gift and a great pick by my mother in law.



Thank you! I was really happy with how it all matched up, and it's always nice to find the right project for things that have been stashed for a while too.


Thanks! Buttonholes are one of those things that aren't actually all that difficult but that I hate the thought of, so I'm always glad to avoid them if I can.

One day I will have sewn all my Oliver + S patterns but until Liesl retires the pile will also keep growing. :)
This is a beautiful dress.


I am with Shelley on that one! Too many beautiful patterns.

Gorgeous dress.
