Any dress with cats is a winner in my book! This is an Olivia Dress sewn up in gorgeous quilting cotton with a bright yellow collar to match! I’m obsessed and a little jealous! The Olivia Dress Pattern is one of my favorites – it has simple lines but a few really cute features! It is also simple to get on your kiddo, the waistline is elastic and it just slips right on! Plus…POCKETS!
The fabric is called Fancy Cats from the Beauty Shop line by Cotton + Steel, available here. (You can also find the whole line at Fat Quarter Shop) I used Pure Elements Empire Yellow Solid for the collar and it is a perfect match to the features on the cat fabric! The bodice of this dress is lined so I lined it with the same yellow. And check out the big daisy button on the back! I love how it works with the 70s vibe of the fabric.
The Olivia Dress matches the women’s Olive Dress – same cute silhouette, pockets and waistline! I need to make myself a few more!
I’ll be sharing summer sewing projects all week long! It feels so good to have a fresh stack of girly clothes for this one so hopefully it will inspire you too!
