Hopscotch Dress

I tried the Hopscotch Dress pattern from Oliver & S this morning. It is an excellent pattern. The pieces fit perfectly together, the instructions are really clear and it is very quick to make. I used some spotty stretch fabric I found in Spotlight and made a size 6. Grace is modelling, but it has been claimed by Amelia as Grace wants a red one.

Another great thing - I tried it on Eva and apart from the length it fits perfectly so I don't have to trace it in another size. I can see myself making lots of these as dresses, tops and for pj tops and nighties.
