When I saw this fabric, I knew I wanted to turn it into a dress for my toddler. Since my husband put me on a spending freeze immediately after buying this fabric, I used what I could find in my sewing room for the notions and lining! (The lining is actually from some curtains I made years ago, and apart from it shredding like crazy when I was cutting it out, it came up fine as the lining).
The pattern instructions were straight forward (as usual for Oliver + S!). The trickiest part was probably cutting it out in such a way that the design lined up properly at the back seam.
