Hot on the heels of the O+S bubble dress, here is the music box jumper. This is in size 12-18 months, and fits my plump 8-month-old nicely with some winter layers underneath. (Hoping it will still fit next summer as a little sun dress). Once again - lovely pattern, fabulous instructions. The bodice is lined, so with french seam in the skirt it looks almost as good inside as outside! It's on the expensive side, as patterns go, so I'll need to make lots to make it worthwhile financially. But I've already started on another - the only change I'll be making is to use a smaller print next time, as the large print doesn't work so well with pleats.

There's another version of the skirt with several pleats front and back - I've made the version here with just on central pleat and a slightly flared skirt. It also has optional decorative pocket flaps - I left them out as the print was so busy, but will be using them next time.

Thanks! The fabric is a Michael Miller cotton called 'Bite Me' in the brown colourway. Here's a link to the pattern details as well..  http://www.oliverands.com/patterns/dresses/patterns21.phtml

Cute dress. I love the fabric you chose. Aren't Oliver + S patterns delightful? I just finished the sailboat skirt and top for my daughter. The instructions were excellent. Music box may have to be next.
