Oliver + S Badminton dress

I’ve made the skort and top before, so making this dress was a bit faster (thankfully!). I trimmed my seam allowances at the yoke/facing too much though so I struggled edge stitching the yoke. Other than that, I still enjoyed making it. The muppet is into all things that are cats these days, thus the chosen fabric and so I can definitely say that she is in love with this dress. I asked her to try it on so I can snap some photos and she didn’t want to take it off anymore. I let her choose the ribbon as well, and of course she chose pink. Now that I look at it, I think the pink does add a nice pop of colour to the dress.

Pattern: Oliver + S Badminton skort, top + dress (made the skort once before, here and skort and top, here)

Fabric: Tiger Stripes in Blue – Hatbox – Alexia Abegg – Cotton + Steel quilting cotton fabric bought at my local online fabric shop The Laughing House for 16 dollars per yard / Yoke & sleeves: Solid navy blue voile bought at a fabric shop in Yangon / Ribbon: Pink with running white stitches bought in Hong Kong years ago

Sizing: 4

Design Changes: Nothing. Next time, I will add some length to the dress.

The Verdict: We love it. I’ll probably make a few more of these dresses. I think I need a break from all this sewing for muppet so next project will be for me. 🙂
