I had purchased some discounted Cotton + Steele fabric to make Christmas dresses for Miss H and the little baby girl we are caring for right now, however when I was home and shopping with my mom in October, I fell in love with the Scandinavian look of the Kate Spain North Woods line. I decided to save the C+S for later and bought a few yards of the Multi Snow print from North Woods. For a while I thought I would do some paper piecing for the yokes of the dresses, but in the end I decided I didn't have time. I was unable to find a red fabric that I liked locally (one store showed me Grinch fabric when I asked for their Christmas selection, and the other store I had shopped at in the Bay Area closed their physical location) so I described what I was looking for to my mom, and she bought and sent me a yard of some fun geometric reds from a previous Kate Spain line called Jingle.
Two years ago I made the same Oliver + S pattern dress for Miss H for Christmas. I didn't want it to be a repeat this year, but I love the pattern and I decided my fabric was different enough that it would be alright. This is the first time I've made it in a tiny size, and although I chose to just make plain short sleeves and leave off the pockets for the baby, I still love it.
Pattern: Oliver + S Hide-and-Seek Dress
Fabric: Multi Snow from North Woods by Kate Spain and Crystal in Crimson from Jingle by Kate Spain
Size: 6-12 months and 6 (the baby size runs pretty long!)
Changes: I used snaps in the back rather than buttons, and I added some deep red pom-pom trim across the front for fun!
