Confession: I had never sewn with an Oliver and S pattern before this top.
I know, I know! And I called myself a sewing blogger! lol. I have copied their looks a few times, but after having used one of their patterns, I am a convert.
Another confession: Get ready for a slew of Oliver and S projects because I am now obsessed.
I made a class picnic blouse for Sadie, and love how it turned out! (partially because of that fabric! We both fell in love with it so I had to get some when it was on sale a little while ago. It’s some organic cotton from Fabricworm!)
I cut out a size 3T, which was a little bit big on my teeny bean pole, but I was glad, since it’ll fit her longer. The sleeves can always be shortened if needed in the spring, too! I had some vintage piping so I added that in below the back and front yokes. (I may
or may not be addicted to piping lately)
I learned a few new things along the way and even with ripping out a seam twice (my bad), it only took about 2 hours or so. One tip, if you decide to put piping in the yoke seams, don’t do it when you sew the wrong side of the shirt piece to the right side of the yoke facing. (ask me how I know lol) Slip it in when you top stitch the front yoke to the shirt piece.
Plus she loves it! Score.
