Oliver + S Jump Rope Dress

I'm a little obsessed with this dress.

There is a large part of me that wants to hide it from her and frame it in a shadow box.

It was a pleasure to sew. I'm now even more in love with Oliver + S patterns. I want more. More. MORE.


I am now going to post far too many pictures of this dress.

I am tempted to label this "the most favorite best thing I've ever sewn"

It could have been her Easter dress, but it didn't get finished until today (day after Easter).

And I was sick-ish on Easter, so we didn't even go to church.

So it's her day-after-Easter dress.

Have I mentioned that I really really really really love this dress?

One last picture.

Le Sigh.

Je T'aime.

Sooo cute! You know, I have a few little girls that would love to have new dresses. Just in case you need an excuse to sew another one. : )

Everything you sew is amazing. I wish I had even half of your talent. Great Job!

Love it! I'm trying desperately to force myself out into girl's clothing for my daughter from the safety of my quilt cave. I wish I could make one this complicated already! I'm going to try the Popover dress first.

I just bought some very similar fabric to this to make this exact dress for my daughter!!! (what can I say, great minds think alike!). This is one of my favourite O + S patterns too. Your daughter is obviously very pleased with the dress!
