|Lidia, Matilda and Beatrix's turn on the sewing rota.|
But one last show&tell.
An Oliver+S Croquet dress.
I have made both styles before.
I have a step-by-step tute for view A and view B.
This time as a sneaky school uniform.
Lidia's measurements put her in a 12 and that is what I sewed.
I added a cotton webbing badge holder.
And a sneaky Liberty facing.
As it is a school uniform and very hand-me-downable I added a large 6 inch hem.
I also used an elastic loop instead of a thread one, mine always break.
MoP button, of course.
I really really hope this dress makes it under the radar. It looks so nice and quite suitable for a school uniform.
I think my new uniform is beautiful. I love that the collar is decorative. The sash is cute.
I had some comments from girls (at school) that they like it but no one has told me I can't wear it (yet).
If I had another made as a uniform I would prefer the elastic at my waist rather then my hips.
I like it a lot more then my old school uniforms (Butterick basic uniform pattern)
I really like that Mum used my signature Liberty as a facing and a special button.
