|oliver+S Bubble Dress|
I have made two of these divine numbers for Little One, one with bubbles and one without, and with her second birthday around the corner I thought it was high time for another!(or two)
Now the scalloped version HAS to be a spotty fabric,its a bubble dress! But the softer balloony style has a lot more scope. The bodice on both views is perfect as a canvas for a really geometric design as it has a lovely, uncluttered front.
So, I decided on the Michael Miller Disco Dots for view A and Tula Pinks Bunny Damask for view B.

It is well worth taking your time cutting this pattern out if you are using obvious repeat, as it displays your fabric to full advantage. I made one in an Amy Butler print and was very fussy with the front bodice but the rest I just cut to grain as it was a busy abstract print.

Another , I just cut to grain as the pattern was very busy. It worked out just as well.
I have ended up cutting out five Bubble Dresses, two for Little Ones birthday in size 12-18 mnths, one for her friend in size 2T to be sewn now. I also cut out two more in size 2T for Little One to have in Summer 2012. I love having outfits pre-cut!
