Today I am sharing Olive Ann Designs with you. She's another newer designer out there, but her designs are adorable. My granddaughter loved the little outfit that I made for her along with the one I made for her American Doll. (Several of OAD's patterns do include an 18" doll size pattern to match.) I made my granddaughter's outfit first then went to work on making the adult size blouse pattern for two of my daughters. The adult pattern is a separate purchase and NOT included in the child's pattern. FYI, the adult size pattern runs rather small so take that into account if you should decide to make a blouse for yourself. I have made a total of 5 or 6 of the adult size blouse pattern but had to make major adjustments for the ones I made for my daughters. I also made three adult size blouses for the shop where I used to work. I made each size according to the pattern directions from the smallest size offered to the largest. Every woman who tried the blouses on had a hard time finding the right fit. Even the medium size was a hard fit. As far as the child size goes, it was a perfect fit for my granddaughter. All of that being said, I give Olive Ann a B.
Here is the pattern:
The outfit I made for my granddaughter and her American Doll:
And one of the ones I made for my one daughters:
I have also been working on a girlie, girl quilt for the new little one that is heading our way from my son and daughter-in-law...can't wait! Here is a little peek. I just can't find the right minkie for the back of the quilt...but I will! Once done I'll repost.
And last but definitely not least, I have also been working on an 'I Spy" quilt for my grandson Logan.
This one is taking me a lot longer than I had originally anticipated BUT I am determined to get it done for my little guy:
Until next time.
