Sewing 1, 2, 3: Two

The little model
The next day I made another item for Tabby-a sundress. I was tidying and came across a printout of a free pattern from Oliver + S for a “popover sundress.”  I remembered some purple seersucker type fabric I bought at the beginning of the summer and decided to use that.   The most time consuming part of this whole thing was seriously just the assembling of pattern.  To get the long bias strips I had to cut four pieces instead of two, and then sew together, but that was no problem at all.  I had lots of purples around from Megan’s quilt, so used different purple for the yoke, pocket, and the headscarf that I made today.  Isn’t the pocket cute?
Pocket Detail
That was not part of the pattern, just something I added.  The bias strip covering the armhole and turning into the strap worked out so perfectly and evenly I couldn’t believe it.
Complete ensemble
So simple and easy and perfect for summer–I’ll definitely be making this again!

  1. It’s awesome! I love the matching scarf, and doesn’t Tabby have a little sassy attitude going there in the first photo? 🙂 So cute!
