A New Love…Oliver + S Patterns

Apple Shot



Why has it taken me so long to purchase a pattern from O+S?

Don’t you love this dress? Isn’t it amazing? Such a classic look!! I’m totally in love, can you tell?

You know the saying, this isn’t your grandmothers dress…or pattern. (that isn’t a saying?? well, it is now)  WELL…that doesn’t pertain to this pattern.

What am I talking about? Let me clarify. This pattern is so well written, put together so perfectly, that it would have to get the seal of approval from every seamstress that has been sewing for 70 years. There’s no short cuts here folks. It’s a labor of love, and it is well worth it!!


This is the School Photo Dress. (hence the red apple…cute eh?)

It has a  fully lined, a-line body.

Very retro above the knee length.

It features a perfect little “hidden pocket” on the front seams. Perfect for toting around your favorite

Lalaloopsy dolls.

Bias bound 3/4 length sleeves. (few different options)

Dainty ruffle neckline, shown here. (again, another option for neckline as well)

Fully hidden zipper in back of dress. You will not find better zip instructions, I promise.

So….I took about 200 pictures of her today in this dress…because as I mentioned, I love it.

Here are a few!!

So, I’m here to say, if you haven’t tried any O+S patterns, yet…get on it. You won’t regret it!!
