Have you seen the lovely newest pattern by the amazing Jessica from Craftiness is not Optional? Well, the Olivia Top and Dress is simply adorable, and I was so excited to be a part of the tour. Shockingly, after all the dresses I made for her last summer, Anja was actually in need of something that fits, and this one was perfect!
Here's Jessica's description of the Olivia Top and Dress:
"This frock features and adorable button up empire waist style bodice, with sleeves in three variations: sleeveless, short, and elbow length. The gathered skirt is comfortable and breezy, and the fit is meant to be loose and flowing-it's all about comfort!"
I love a pattern with opportunities to personalize, and that's exactly what this one offers. I chose to lengthen the sleeves, and add bias tape to them, as well as some ties for the back and front pockets. Other then that, I stuck to the original.
The pattern was super easy to follow (love how Jessica's fun personality shines through the instructions like she's right there with you!), and the photographs are gorgeous.
The Olivia Top and Dress pattern is available here.
I'm so excited that one lucky reader will get to enjoy this pattern, too!
