These patterns had just arrived at the store, but I was far away in South America. I really wanted to get my hands on them and start making some nice new outfits. So, the best I could do was brainstorm some color and pattern combinations in anticipation of returning home.
Most people see the cover of this pattern and do not realize it is a pleated dress. The dress on the cover is made with dots and it is hard to tell. When Mollie from my Tuesday night class made it I was so jealous. I loved how her daughter twirled in it and I love the fabric she picked.
I could not be happier with this pattern, the Seashore Sundress by Oliver + S. I bought it about a year and a half ago because I just loved the look, but I never could decide on the fabric. I usually have the opposite problem: love the fabric but can’t find the pattern.
