Bubble Dress {Oliver and S}

I've recently given myself some limits...can't cut out anything new until I finish current pile. It's been working because I'm slowly making progress on a huge stack of unfinished projects. Yay for limits!

I cut this out over a year ago, started sewing it 6 months ago and finally finished last week. Luckily, it happens to be my two year old's current size.

Pattern pros:

Super Easy.
It's fully lined!
Did I mention how Easy? Yes, very, very easy.
Only uses one yard (not including lining). I'm a huge fan of one yard projects, patterns.

Pattern cons:

I'm undecided on that sleeve topstitching.

P.S. I can't stop thinking about pairing the dress with this beauty from JCrew.


  1. Gorgeous, that little dress. Love the colours, with those bright yellow 'pops'. And I agree that it will look stunning with that hair band. Oh, and I have to say I kind of like the topstitching at the sleeve. Cute!

  2. I'm a fan of topstitching...I think it adds a more finished look to a garment. Beautiful dress!

  3. I always love good topstitching--besides it holds things in place.

    Cool fabric!
    I've got to get thinking about Spring/Easter dresses for my girls.

  4. Beautiful!! I love the fabric. I think the topstitching looks good; it defines the sleeve area.

  5. Love!

    And you could totally make that headband. :D

  6. Miss L will be so cute in this!

  7. i love this fabric!!! it is so pretty

  8. Love the fabric! The headband is a must have, so cute! Tiffany
