I'm in love with oliver + s now! The pattern was easy to follow and I love how professional looking it turned out. The fabric I used for the top and skirt is something I've had in my stash for a couple of years and I can't remember who it's by. The pink paisley is a super soft voile fabric and I think it's by Anna Maria Horner but I can't seem to find it online so that might be wrong. I purchased it locally and was in such a rush I didn't even bother to look. It reminds me a lot of the fabric I used for Madeline's sunsuit and my shirred sundress. Its very thin and has the most vibrant colors.
I didn't follow the oliver + s skirt pattern. I decided just to do a simple elastic waisted skirt made from 2 rectangles. The waist band is really small because I used scraps to make it but I really like how it turned out. She has worn it a couple of times now and it looks super cute with a collared t-shirt. I need to get busy making more of these skirts and take advantage of this perfect bubble butt diaper age.
I didn't have any small buttons to cover with fabric so I went with invisible snaps again. I love having those to fall back on! I was not in the mood to do buttons anyway and she outgrows these clothes so fast that my standards for the fine details have gone way down! She is also a little monkey and is into and on top of everything so my sewing time has gone way down as well! But I know the time goes by fast so I'm enjoying every second of this sweet energetic baby.
