Oliver + S Birthday Party Dress

If you have ever heard of Oliver + S children's patterns then you'll know how totally gorgeous they are! Beautifully designed by Lisel Gibson who originally trained in New York, these stylish patterns have become popular all over the world from Australia to Norway and of course, the UK. 
Despite not having an sprogies of my own I just could't resist getting one when I went to the Knitting and Stitching show last year! I choose the super cute birthday party dress pattern.

I've been admiring the beautiful packaging for a few months and last week I decided to stitch it up. 

 I chose this light weight cotton flower print which I think worked really well...

 ...and little wooden buttons for the tab and back fastenings. 

 The pattern was so easy to use, everything all lining up perfectly so its got a neat slick finish to it. I've made up size 6-12 months but age range goes up to 12 on some patterns. 
Now I just need to find an ickle little person to fit into it!
