After the recent success of the Popover Sundress, I decided to try another Oliver + S dress - this time, the Badminton Dress. You can make it as a top with skorts (in my line-up of projects do to soon!), or as a dress. This is one of the few paper patterns I own from Oliver + S, so I was quite happy to skip the steps of printing, cutting, taping and tracing before I could get to cutting the fabric!
I found this wonderful organic cotton from Cloud 9 Fabrics designed by Sarah Watson just by chance when wandering through the sale section in Sing Mui Heng. At the time I didn't have a plan for it, so I bought the 1-yard minimum and decided I'd find a use later. A friend has asked me to make her daughter a dress with the same fabric...luckily it's still on sale! And of course I couldn't resist adding a few more pieces to my stash. Who knows what they'll turn into?!
