I was excited to be asked to be part of this tour! I found myself among many talented and creative seamstresses. I really love all of Olga’s patterns, she has a gift for modernizing classic designs and putting her own twist on them. I sewed up the Antalya Dress and I loved how it turned out. I haven’t sewn anything for her for awhile and I quickly discovered that during that time she’s become much more opinionated about what she wears. This is the pattern, the fabric, and the piping that she chose! While I wouldn’t classify myself as a “pink floral print” person, I was happy to sew this up for her. It’s what she wanted and so it’s what I wanted. I did, however, get to pick out the plain white buttons while she was at pre-school though, so I was allowed a little creative freedom.
This floral print is a lawn from Moda Fabrics and it’s going to be really light and airy as the weather continues to heat up around here. Plus, Easter is right around the corner so I can check “Make Easter Dress” off my list!
Like Olga’s other patterns, this one sewed up beautifully and I found the fit to be spot on. I’m really glad that I added piping because I think it really elevates this pattern but I found that I was embarrassingly out of practice with piping! It took me a few passes to get it right. Admittedly, I had gotten a little cocky with all of the topstitching and difficult constructions that I’ve done recently…..but this piping took me down a few notches.
With the exception of my poor piping skills, the construction was easy and clean and the results are just the cutest! I would definitely recommend any and all of Olga’s patterns.
