Another Olivia Walton 'Look Alike" Wrap Dress

Wrap Dress...

Here is another Olivia Walton --- Look alike dress.
 The fabric is  a pretty teal blue with pretty flowers..
And I used fabric from my stash.. I am trying
"really hard" , to do that!!

This is not the fabric that Olivia's dresses would have
been made from.. But, I love the colorful fabric.And
bet if it would have been available to her, she would
have liked it too.ha

I love this style dress , it is really comfortable and
easy to wear.

I actually made this dress a month or so ago.. And just never
got around to posting about it.

Check out this blog post, to see a better photo of this fabric.The
bottom photo is the fabric that I used.. I had posted a  different
pattern to use , but it didn't happen.. the wrap dress was
chosen over the other patterns.

Thank you Eva Girl, for all your inspiration and help with
this pattern..

  1. It is very pretty. Teal is one of my favorite colors. I like how you paired a red belt w/ the dress. I would have never thought to do that :)

      I actually tried a cream colored belt [that is the color of the flower petals, but it just didn't do it.. The red was better..

  3. This is nice!! The belt sets it off so well. Finished not-my 1952 pattern, but didn't wear the dress Sunday, as I had nursery duty. Hopefully next week. Looking for a beige narrow belt to finish it off. May make a self-fabric one with a 'saved' buckle from Mom's button box. Will send you a pic soon..D
