Today I get the pleasure of sharing a new pattern from Jess of Craftiness Is Not Optional: the Olivia Top and Dress!
Stinking adorable, right?
I was thrilled to have the opportunity to be a part of the pattern tour because I was totally coveting this pattern ever since Jess first started posting about it. It is such a sweet pattern!
This pattern is super versatile. As the name suggests, there are options for a dress or a top. That alone right there is awesome, but then there are also three different sleeve options! It is great to get a pattern that you have lots of options with. Makes you feel like you’re getting more for your buck!
Another thing that I really love about this pattern are the details. I used to be a much more lazy sewer. But I’ve really grown to love details that make the finished product look finished and special. The binding around the neckline, and the button placket on this top does exactly that! I had someone tell me that these tops looked store bought! I totally attribute that to the fantastic finishing options on this pattern.
I also love the fit of the top. It is a nice, loose, boxy fit – which is great for young girls who are constantly on the move. Paired with some skinny jeans, and you’ve got one darling outfit!
Be sure to check out all of the other great versions of the pattern on the tour over at Craftiness Is Not Optional!
I’m excited to get to give one of you a copy of the Olivia Top and Dress Pattern!
