Sewing with oliver + s

I sewed an oliver + s pattern this week. A blouse for granddaughter. The fabrics I used were from American Jane's Punctuation range. If I made it again I think I would make it be a dress instead of a blouse and I don't think I would put the ties around the neck on it because they serve no useful purpose. You can't even do them up. The pattern was pretty straightforward, but I do have quite a bit of clothes sewing experience. Possibly if I had been a beginner I would have been a bit lost because there were not diagrams of every step. I have yet to see it on my granddaughter but I think it will be pretty cute and I will probably make some more!

This is so cute..I can see why you would get rid of the ties & would make an even cuter dress...

It is cute. I like the fabric you chose too. And the ties...I notice that they are untied in the pattern photo too. Seems to me they would only be used to chew on and that would get very nasty very quickly so I'm with you - leave those off next time.
