This is my first go at an Oliver + S pattern. All I really need to say is that if the pattern weren’t as fantastic as it is, I never would have been able to pull it off. The placket and collar fabric is Denyse Schmidt County Fair for Freespirit and the body fabric is a super soft tweed that I found on a remnant table at my favorite local fabric shop. I think the pockets are my favorite detail. But the whole thing just makes me happy — and super proud. The best part is that it fits my little girl perfectly. If you want to see more, there is a photo of the pocket detail here and the collar and placket here.
My mother-in-law made us that measuring board to track the heights of the kids. You can’t see all the wood-burned details marking each foot increment in this photo, but it is very well done and so fun to use.
