It's taken me a while to try an Oliver+s pattern as they are so much more expensive than many others - but now I've tried the bubble dress I think I'm hooked! Here it is:

This is a size 6-12months, and it fits my chubby six month old perfectly, with a bit of room to grow. It came together really easily, and I didn't have to mess with the pattern at all.  The instructions were very clear - and they includes lots of advice on how best to go about each step, more like a tutorial than a standard pattern.

The only (very small) change that I made was to omit the top-stitiching on the bodice - it just didn't seem necessary, it looked so sweet without.

This pattern goes up to 2 yrs, and then there's another which goes from 3 - 5. I might have to buy that too in time! I've already had two requests to make this dress for friends, so it will be a good Christmas present stand-by, and it's versatile enough to make in summer or winter-weight fabrics. It could work as a pretty sundress without the bubble hem as well, so on a cost-per-use basis it may yet work out better value than some of the cheaper patterns that I've used only once or twice.

I have wanted to buy those patterns so often, but I am too cheap. This is adorable! Guess i'll have to try them now!
