KCW Summer 2014

KCW Day 2: Pink dress in the books

It’s not typical for me to have a finished garment this early during a KCW but I’m bucking my trend this time around!  It helps that this dress for N went together really fast.

Modified Popover and a very happy girl!

Modeling her “beee-utiful” dress.

This is a modified version of the Oliver + S free Popover Dress pattern made in a luscious Anna Maria Horner voile.  I’ve made the Popover Dress for N before (still unblogged) and after that dress, I knew that I wanted to make some changes to address both style and fit issues.

I made those changes here and I absolutely love the end result!  In fact, I love it so much that I can’t do it justice with iPhone photos taken in the morning before school.  So, my full post and review will wait until I can get N and her dress out to take some proper photos.  I’ll just leave you with a close-up of the dress yoke.  I recently acquired an edgestitching foot for my Bernina, which I loooooove!  I end up with perfect topstitching pretty much every time!

In addition to finishing this dress, I also cut fabric for J’s outfits, which I’ll start on tonight.  All was going swimmingly until I realized that I had grabbed my size 3T Blank Tank pattern pieces rather than the size 5 pattern pieces.  Luckily these tanks take less than 1/2 yard of fabric so I had plenty left to recut them.  And that, my friends, is why you shouldn’t cut fabric at 11:30pm!

  1. What a lovely dress, gorgeous material & I’ll be interested to hear your tweaks. I’m currently working on a pair of the Oliver + S sunny shorts for my wee boy & have already made a few of the bucket hats – they’re great patterns! This is my 1st time taking part in KCW & it’s great motivation.
