Spring dress.

 Did you hear?! Oliver + S released their new spring patterns last week.  As I impatiently waited for my paper patterns to arrive I had plenty of time to plan.  I immediately knew I wanted to make the Roller skate dress use some of the yummy AMH voile, I have used it for a Pierrot and an Ice cream top and absolutely loved it.  



This is a size Six with a bit of length.  I wanted this to be simple and show off the fabric, so I went with View A minus the bow.  I centered the pattern so the solid was in the middle, I like it. 



I really like the way it turned out in the back too, I was able to make the seam nearly invisible (at least I think).


 
 
I didn't have any exciting buttons, so just a simple gray one.  The pattern is absolutely wonderful, not that I would expect anything less from Liesl and co.  It has such a great shape, and it is fully lined.  Abby has requested many more of these!  ... That's right! She asked for more dresses!! I think I can fulfill that request;)
 
 



I used the tutorial on the Oliver + S website to make a stack of these cute bows. She loves them all:)


 
 
I may have gone a little overboard...
