It is the Oliver and S Family Reunion Dress. I was a little slow coming to the party on this pattern. I only got it at the beginning of the year when Fabric.com were having a sale on Oliver and S patterns.
It is a great pattern to sew, it is really straight forward. Why did it take me so long to complete - buttonholes and buttons!! I don't know what it is with them, but I always put them off. With this dress I completed the buttonholes over a month ago, but it actually took me until last weekend at Sew It Together to sew the buttons on.
I was worried that Ella wouldn't get any wear out of it, but the weather today was perfect and sunny, which makes a nice change from the rain we have been having.
The elephants - I love this fabric! I only bought a metre and I wish I bought more as I have not seen it again in the same colourway. If you find anymore of this, let me know..... actually maybe you shouldn't - I need to remember the fabric ban.
I thought I would leave you today with a photo from where we were today - Nelson Bay which is not too far from where we live. Pretty special place and not bad for winter.
