I just recently completed my very first Oliver + S pattern. I don't have any little ones to sew for so I made the Birthday Party Dress for my friend's baby girl. I decided to attempt an Oliver + S pattern because I get so overwhelmed when sewing for myself. I thought a small scale pattern might help me focus on the construction without worrying about fitting my body. I am so happy that I did this because the Birthday Party dress came out so well. I even tried French seams for the first time! You can check it out here, on my blog, if you'd like: helenethelstudio.blogspot.com/2011/01/oliver-s-birthday-p....
