Itch to Stitch: Dress 4

My blogger pal, Sue, is doing a skirt a month this year and is posting the last Monday of the month, which is today.  See her skirt here.
I decided to join her.   I'm aiming to make a dress a month for the next 12 months for my little girl.  I do love a gorgeous little dress, especially a mama made one, on my little girl.  So, that's the plan.
Dress one: Here.
Dress two: Here.
Dress three: Here

Dress four:
 It's a bit big, as I'm trying to make things to last.
 It's another Oliver & S pattern. I have a love/hate relationship with Oliver & S, I decided. I love their style and design, but I sometimes get annoyed with their patterns. Their patterns take extra lengths to hide as many seams as possible on the inside....which means they often take the long road in getting things done.  Serged seams on the inside don't bother me, so I did cut a couple corners. Annoying all the extra steps, but you have a professional product when you're done.
 She told me "Pretty dress, mama."  And just like that, I melted.
 It's a perfect spring/summer dress to play with her favorite pals.

 Four dresses, four different styles so far in 2014.  If you missed them, look below this post and you'll likely see other months posted. 


  1. Oh my goodness! Is it ever adorable! I love it! Your little model is precious too!

  2. This is an adorable dress, Jackie. I just love the contrasting bodice and cuffs. I like serging seams too. ;-)
