Oliver + S in Dewberry, Take 2

Back when I was pregnant with Elena, I made this dress for some friends as a baby gift.  It was the Oliver + S Puppet Show tunic and shorts.  The fabric is Joel Dewberry Heirloom Voile in Opal and a yellow linen.  I loved how it turned out so much that I knew I wanted to make a second one for my own little girl.  I made the shorts at that time and ordered the fabric, but it just sat there along with all of the other projects in my studio waiting to become reality.

A couple weeks ago, we received a note from daycare that picture day was coming up.  I decided it was a good time to make that little top.  But I've made the Puppet Show tunic a bunch of times and I hadn't yet tackled the Family Reunion Dress so I decided to make that instead.

This pattern is quite a bit simpler.  Fewer pieces. so less matching. The neck is a little wide, but I do really love this design.

To make it even simpler and avoid problems matching, I cut the back in one piece and used a placket instead of the back button band. 

Here mom.
