Sewing for Miss M

Library ninja dress

Another dress that was finished a couple of months ago, but never made it here.

I’ve said it before, if I don’t blog about it as soon as it’s finished, changes are I forget about posting about it.

Nevertheless, and because there are still a few things that I would like to post here (I’m constantly checking back here as reference), I’ll be making a few short posts over the next couple of weeks (before it’s way to late for that, lol).

This week: Oliver+S Library Dress in navy seersucker and Liberty leftover from a previous project.

I didn’t felt for this pattern when it was first released and it did took me quite a while to actually get it. And even after that, it took me some seriously “reflection” to choose the right fabrics (still I’m not sure of my choices).

Don’t judge the dress by the way it looks in the doll form (the dress is a size 6 and it’s quite a fitted design and the doll form is a size 8).

Nevertheless, I was totally won by this dress after it’s worn.

The fit is adorable on my girl and I can’t get over how cute the pleated skirt looks.

Of course, my girl didn’t get impressed by the pattern name (Library dress) and decided it was more fitted to a ninja…

I can see more versions of the Library Dress in my future. I will however make a small adjustment in order to make the waistband a little narrow as both my husband and my kids keep calling it the “Ninja dress” 🙂

  1. That’s so funny, my little gal calls her Library Dress her “karate dress!” Maybe we should petition Liesl for a pattern name change. 😉 I love your version, it’s beautiful!
