Oliver + S Hide and Seek Dress

Tuesday, January 24, 2017

Ever since Rachel of Stitched Together posted her floral Hide and Seek dress, I knew I needed to make one! My first Hide and Seek dress was color blocked with solid fabrics for a Knock It Off Post

Inspired by Rachel, I went with the all over floral print. The fabric is from the Les Fleurs collection by Rifle Paper Co. I have all the heart eyes for each of the prints, but this is the only one I purchased thus far. It was so hard to decide what to make with it!!

 In my head the knee socks and boots worked perfect, but I'm not sure this is the best styling for this dress after all. We'll have to work on that!

The only drawback to this busy print is that you don't see the wonderful lines of the dress as clearly. I love the princess like seams with front and back yoke panels. 

The notch at the neck is another feminine touch. 

I added a row of tiny pom-pom trim at the base of the front yoke to accent the sweet gathers beneath. She started collecting a "brown bouquet" here. The bouquet is still sitting on our kitchen windowsill, because despite being brown, it is lovely.

This is Tandy's Snow White smile. At least that is a guess. She has started asking me to name a princess, and she will give me her smile. I haven't figured out an difference in the actual smiles, and they certainly aren't big happy grins. It's one of those quirks I love to record to capture the memory.
