If you read my initial post about the new Oliver + S pattern releases, you’ll remember I said that the Hide and Seek dress would probably be one of those dresses that I like but would actually love once I saw it made. I found further evidence of that theory … Probably Actually made the dress and it is awesome.

I’m thinking of using the Interweave Chambray from Robert Kaufman in Wisteria .. now to figure out what fabric to highlight in the yoke!

I wonder if mom would let me stay home all next week and just sew? Technically I’d be working on samples for the shop ;)

Yesterday we posted about the Spring 2014 Oliver + S pattern releases which featured a beautiful, frilly dress, the Garden Party Dress. I loved the pattern at first glance but then fell more in love with it when I saw that the ladies of Probably Actually and Skirt as Top did with it.

I love the bold prints paired with the solids .. especially the coral solid. I want to drop all the projects I have going on right now and make this dress!

Both used the Meadow fabrics from Art Gallery. While I absolutely LOVE the prints we got, I wish we had gotten these two prints as well. If we can pre-sell enough of the fabric, I’ll do everything I can to get it in stock. Let me know if you’re interested!
