Hot Off The Press




I told you I am somewhat obsessed with making "Olivia's". Here is this mornings version. This time I decided to use a contrasting fabric for the center band and I trimmed it out with hot pink ribbon with black saddle stitching and added the sweet little bows to the back for interest and to make it a little bit different. Yes, I know, I still have to sew the hot pink buttons on the back of the dress but I was anxious to have Abby try it on and I can easily sew the buttons on later. I also added a pretty fabric flower to make the front more interesting. To be honest . . . I am not totally sure if I like this dress or not. One minute I think it's cute, the next minute I wonder if it's a train wreck. I'm still undecided. I personally like the last one I showed you much more. But, I wanted to show you yet another idea of what you will be able to do with this new design. You can use 1, 2, or even 3 prints if you wanted to. It all depends on what you like and the look you are going for.

I love this pattern! I want to make one but I want to shorten the skirt and make it a long shirt. Is that possible with this patter? Do you allow for us to do alterations like that?

I love the pleats you added at the neckline. I think that makes a huge difference and I love the way the fit looks now. And I wouldn't say it's a train wreck--it's doing very well on Pinterest tonight. :-) I absolutely love that fabric. Did you tell us what it was and I just missed it? I think I'm going to have to have this pattern.

I love this pattern and the contrast band! Definitely not a train wreck. Your use of fabrics and trims is so creative. Can't wait for this one!

I really like the fabrics and the contrast. Love the large flower on the front - not as thrilled about the two small bows on the back - I can see them getting frayed way too easily. I also think they mess with the clean elegant lines of the dress. Cannot wait for the pattern - any estimates on fabric amount needed? I saw some I would love for this and was curious how much you were using?

I love this version of the pattern. The fabrics look great together.
