Made My Wardrobe Olivia Dress (Beginner)

(No reviews yet) Write a Review


The Olivia Dress is a pinafore style wrap dress which can be worn on its own or over a top, I recommend the Amaya Shirt, but a simple t-shirt or turtle neck also looks great. It has lovely deep pockets, an adjustable waist tie and shoulder straps which cross at the back. If you are someone who always loves the idea of wearing backless dresses but can’t go braless, the Josie Bra is the perfect match for this dress.

UK sizes 6 - 24 (see below)

Made My Wardrobe recommends this pattern to ambitious beginners and more experienced sewers alike.
