There is nothing like a beautifully written Oliver + S pattern to get my confidence back after two complete dud projects. I didn’t exercise much creativity in fabric choice, since this is the exact same as the sample, but who cares? I think it turned out perfectly.
The size four would fit better, but since that’s the cutoff between patterns, I’ve been sizing up for some time.
The roominess is a good thing, I think.
I love that the bow is not actually a “drawstring” like I thought it was. Those always get separated from their garments in our house.
Like the sample, I used a portion of the border on the shoulder straps.
I cheated and used the serger to make a thread chain. Don’t know if it’ll hold up, but it was fast.
Ahhhh. Feels good to be “successful” again.
