This is a lovely little dress that I made up using two of the Pink, Orange + Black Shweshwes available on www.Stitchsa.co.za and the fabulous Oliver+S Book Report pattern. The instructions were clear and easy to follow and loved how the dress turned out. The light stiffness in the shweshwe worked well in this structured dress and the contrasting patterns look fresh and bright. I made a couple of sizes too big because I like my creations to last a season or two! X
