Since I made my daughter a dress for the first day of preschool last year, I thought I would make one again. This year we chose the Roller Skate Dress from Oliver + S.
I used hot pink Robert Kaufman seersucker for the outer fabric and a lightweight cotton for the lining. I really love the seersucker and I am pleased that I have plenty leftover to make her a skirt at some point.
Harper's measurements fit a size 5 so I made the size 5 without any alterations. She is very slender through the shoulders so the top fits a little bit big, but it isn't unwearably big and gives her a little room to grow.
Overall I thought the pattern was very well written and the fastest and easiest dress pattern that I have made. I do not sew a lot of clothes so if I can do it, you can do it.
Harper really liked the dress and we already have fabric washed and waiting to make the tunic version :)
Thanks for all of your feedback about doing a giveaway as a way to destash. I am planning on going through everything this weekend and I hope to get the giveaway posted on Sunday or Monday, so watch out for it!
