Pockets or not?

At my usual Friday craft night I did some more of the little popover dress and after the girls left I finished the sleeve binding off and the hem. I really love it and am so happy with how the Prints Charming fabric has turned out. I am rather sad that I don't have anymore of this fabric pattern to do a summer dress for Sophie. Perhaps I will just have to add a little to my fabric stash.

Now I have a little dilemma. The dress according to the pattern is finished, but should I add a bound pocket or two on the front? I'm not sure. What shall I do? What do you think, I would love to hear, leave me a comment.

I wanted Sophie to model for me, and she really was not into it at all. So that is why the dress is just on a hanger. I think I need to get some bribes happening so she will help mummy out.

Now onto a skirt for Olivia for church. She is seriously lacking in Winter clothes, and even though this fabric is cotton I think it will look fine with some wool tights and her lovely new Winter shoes.

I'm using another oliver + s pattern for this one called Lazy Days skirt. I have used this pattern before and made Sophie, Olivia and Lilia all the same skirt but in different colour runs of the same material.

I think I am having a bit of a love affair with oliver + s patterns at the moment. :) 


  1. the dress is very cute! i do think that a little pocket will be a good addition too. :)

  2. Yes i think two pockets on the front too. Love it though Sam, lilia will be well chuffed xx

  3. Yes, I love little girls dresses with pockets.
