Winter KCW: Apple-Picking Dress

I received the Oliver + S Apple-Picking Dress pattern for Christmas, and have been anxious to sew it up for Miss H. I chose some pink and gray flannel that I got for $2/yard at Joann in December. It has been a while since I've done much with flannel, and I forgot how stretchy it can be. It actually ended up working in my favor as I was trying to get some of the plaid stripes to match up!


In addition to the bias cut neck tie, I chose to cut the front placket on the bias as well. I'm glad I did, because that would have been entirely too much plaid matching! I used snaps rather than buttons, and am happy with the way they line up so well. I knew that if I tried to line button holes up, it could end very frustratingly for me.


This is a size 3, which I am hopeful will still fit next fall. It is not as long as I envisioned, but there is definitely enough room around the middle and neck for growth.


Miss H loves that it is pink and twirly. My favorite perk of this pattern is that the last step is not hemming!
