Oliver + S After School "Shirt"

 
Oops, before the Christmas gifts post I have Oliver + S winter dresses!
 
 
I used the "After School Shirt + Pants" pattern but made the shirt into a dress by increasing the length.
 
 
The pattern, like I have found with other Oliver + S patterns, was really easy to follow, came together perfectly and looks very professional.
 
 
Because the dresses were so close in size (size 4 and 5) I couldn't tell them apart, so I embroidered their names on the front of the dresses.
 I used a blue and brown fabric for the skirt portion that has little reindeer and snow flakes on it. It is winter themed without being too "in your face" about it.

The back of the dresses have the same 2 button yoke.

They turned out really cute, so cute that they wore them in our family photo this year...

And even family reunions!
I love these dresses.... probably would love it as a shirt too. I will put that on to my to-do next list :)
