Oliver + S Family Reunion Dress

I saw this pattern when my mom was visiting and knew I was going to make it. Like all of the Oliver + S patterns it is classic and modest, two features I appreciate when looking at little girl clothing.

I found the vintage-looking fabric at a local quilt shop but didn't stop to look at the name. It was only $4/yard that day so I got enough to also attempt a matching doll dress (eventually).

I also played with some of the decorative stitches on my Janome DC2010. I had to stop myself because I could just keep adding and adding all the way up the dress.
 There are pintucks that you can't see that great because of the busy pattern, but I know they are there!
At our last fitting Baby Girl screamed and threw herself around fighting even putting on the dress. I know it is too big for her but that is better than being too small. Maybe she just needs to see the finished product to appreciate all the hard work her mama put into her new dress.

Great job! I love the embroidery at the bottom of the dress! So adorable, thanks for sharing!
