Flip This Pattern: Croquet Dress by Oliver + S

I was so surprised and amazed when I got invited to participate in this round for Flip This Pattern! This is one of my favorite series in blog land and I get to be a part of it. Thanks for letting me play along.

 Everyone knows how lovely Oliver + S patterns are and the lovely croquet dress is great on the inside and out. I love the way the insides of the garments are perfect. For my flip, I decided to make a romper with flutter sleeves.

Meet Luna Blue

I edged the front and the sleeves with lace.  The sleeve is lined with a contrasting(matching?) green fabric.

I was going to do a bubble short but I thought basic bottoms helped balance the width and structure of the top.  (I promise, I ironed these but then she played in them.)

There's a peek at that green in the sleeves.

I think the back view is my favorite.

Thanks for looking.  I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with for the sew along.  Make sure you head over to Frances Suzanne and vote for your favorite Croquet Dress creation!  Don't forget to add your link to the sew along too.
