Oliver + S Popover Sundress

I’m so behind blogging my finished makes. I think I made this dress last December and took photos last June (while on holiday so the dress needs a bit of ironing), finally blogging about it now in September. I used the free pattern Popover Sundress from Oliver + S, it’s a really easy one to make and again with Oliver + S, I enjoyed making it. The fabric is a pretty cotton voile from Spotlight I bought when I was just starting to sew. I added a white crochet ribbon underneath the yoke edge and added 6 inches to the front and back’s width to make the dress fuller.

Pattern: Oliver + S Popover Sundress

Fabric: less than 1 meter of cotton voile from Spotlight  / Ribbon: white crochet ribbon from Daiso

Sizing: 4, the yoke is a little too wide. It only fits her nicely now that she’s almost 5 years old

Construction Notes:

– Used french seams
– Added white lace underneath yoke
– Added 6 inches to the front and back’s width to make it fuller (the gathered dress was inspired by Carolyn and Katie‘s versions.)
– I think I added length as well but I can’t remember how much now since I made a long time ago (!)

The Verdict: It’s a pretty summer dress make, I have yet to make it using a quilting cotton but it’s perfect in voile.
