Kid's Clothes Week: A Hopscotch Dress

Here is another one of my favorite Oliver + S patterns, the hopscotch dress! I have made many of them in different sizes. They are very very quick to sew, and they fit my skinny girl well. I feel like this dress can easily look like a nightgown, depending on the colors used. For us, the darker colors look good as dresses, and the lighter colors look like night gowns (at least in the non-toddler sizes). I picked this fabric because it was on sale and because it looked like it would be fun to make something to wear on Saint Patrick's Day. Don't worry, it will get lots of other wear as well!

Pattern: Oliver + S Hopscotch Dress
Size: 6 (this dress runs smaller than most O+S patterns)
Fabric: Pretty Potent Interlock Knit in Grass by Anna Maria Horner
Changes: I added 2 inches in length to the bottom of the dress.

  1. It's really sweet. I have only sewn this pattern once but I keep meaning to try again. I love the green fabric you chose; it is great with her hair.
