Pattern Review ~ Olivia Shirt Dress by My Taylor Made

My Taylor Made photo
I was excited to sew the latest pattern from My Taylor Made, the Olivia Shirt Dress.  This sweet dress buttons up the fron and has both long and short sleeved options.  It has a circle yoke neck and comes in sizes 2-7.   Shannon's instructions & pictures are easy to follow, so don't be intimidated!

This was my first time sewing a shirt dress...I've never even sewn a button-up shirt!  Thankfully, I'm comfortable with my button-hole feature and this dress came together quickly - a 3-4 hour project.  As long as you can sew a button hole, you can make this dress!

The only change I needed was to enlarge the sleeve cuff.  Make sure you test the piece on your model before sewing it on the dress.  My buff little one has big arms! 

Find the Olivia Shirt Dress in My Taylor Made's Etsy shop and stop by Shannon's blog to say hello.  Thanks for letting me test this darling dress, Shannon!

You are so wonderful! I love having you test my patterns. Thank you for such a great review. I ended up adding a little to the arms, so that they would fit more comfortably. Thank you for the suggestion.
