Oliver & S Popover Dress

Bella’s birthday is coming up soon.  The child needs new clothes.  There is a sew along going on, and the first week’s challenge is to remake the Oliver & S Popover Dress.  It’s a free download and a super easy pattern to sew along with.

I decided to keep it pretty simple, although I wanted to make it into a shirt, since we seem to get more use out of shirts versus dresses around here.

The stripe fabric is an old shirt of Jesse’s that I tried to adjust for myself but wasn’t happy with it, so I cut it out again and made it into a shirt for Bella.

I highly suggest you download the pattern and sew one up for a little girl in your life!

  2. I love using recycled men's shirts. Then my granddaughters view it as a special outfit from both of us!
