The Tea Party Pattern that is! I have made dress and shorts only for summer time but this pattern is so great transition from summer to Fall. I did make both of these before the move so this post is coming a bit late, but better late than never!
I made this Tea Party short set with bottoms like the Oliver + S Puppet Show shorts with the added pockets, I love the way it makes them seem girlier to me. (Is that a word??) It is fully lined, I figured a new way to line the dress and the shorts for a nicer finish. I love, love a nicely finished garment!
A lovely part of these is that they are a 4T so I can layer this for fall so easily. I have put tights under them and her Music Call blouse under it for warmth. It looks great also with a sweater as well. They should fit her this next spring and summer.
I made this dress after the one Nicole made Liddy. I fell in love with it! I did add lace to bodice seam instead of the black bias though. Sweet pea is still very little and I love the look of lace. I made this a 4T as well but added Length with the help of Nicole. Sweet pea always out grows her Tea Party dresses in the length before she does the width. The dresses always makes for lovely tops but it would be nice to have her dresses fit a tad longer.
I love, love this one with her Music Class blouse! I made her shirt last winter and it still fits beautifully, all her blouses from last year still fit. (I can't tell you how excited I was over this!)
There is not much satisfying as her outfits carry over from one season to next.
I would have to tell you that this is still my all time favorite Oliver + S and second most used to the Sketchbook pattern.
