More Popover Sundresses

Popover Sundress by nest full of eggs
 I sewed up 6 Popover Sundresses last May and just finished 4 more these past few days. The Popover Sundress is a really great instant gratification sewing project as it's a quick and easy sew. Other great things about the dress is that it's completely reversible and there is no elastic, no buttons, no zipper! And the best thing about this pattern is that it is free!

 Project Details:
Pattern: Oliver+S Popover Sundress (free online sewing pattern in sizes 2-8)
Size: 5
Mods: I did French seams for the side seams, making them super seams, so they will be more durable.

Dress 1:
The floral print is from Fabric Traditions called Garden Party
The solid robin's egg blue is Robert Kaufman Kona Cotton Robin Egg
These 2 fabrics are leftovers fro the Girl's Floral Party Dress I sewed almost 3 years ago.
The solid bubble gum pink is cotton from my stash

This is my favorite dress of the 4, the colors and fabrics are super sweet, pretty, and girly. What a dream it would be to sew little girl clothing everyday in robin's egg blue and bubble gum pink!
