|So studious, LOL|
So. It seemed like the Oliver and S School Photo Dress took me days to finish - which is TRUE - but which feels even LONGER. It's cute, and I like it more, sewn up and seen in real life, as opposed to on the pattern envelope. I can't remember what compelled me to finally buy the pattern at the time, but I think I DID get it on sale at Bolt, LOL.

|Besides the puckering, there are some wrinkles, LOL|
I'm not a fan at all of the ruffle collar, so, you can see I went with View A. I also chose to go with View A on the sleeve finish/cuff, though I did not stitch in the ditch, as directed; I just did a normal edge stitch finish. I did use a plain 'ole pink quilting cotton on the inside - something from my stash, and I barely had enough...whew!
Also, does anyone have any magical cure for sewing linings into zippers by hand - and then having the zipper NOT get caught on the thread....no matter how well it's done?! I thought I was safe this time, but I was NOT, LOL.
I sewed the size 5 with fabric I purchased specifically for this pattern. I think I bought the fabric at Mill End last year - though I could be wrong, and maybe it was Bolt. And holla!!! Hedgehogs??!! Love them.
Overall, it's super cute, and it will fit Camden better in the spring. I am just trying so hard to pump things out quickly when I get a chance to sew.
Next up is a green voile blouse - a Japanese pattern I hope I can figure out by myself!!!! - to match her Sunday Brunch outfit that I sewed LAST YEAR. It barely still fits.
And....this is what the little guy did while I took pictures :)
