Olivia dress and tunic
Olivia is an adorable dress, perfect for twirling thanks to the circle skirt, and with beautiful details in the back. For the buttons in the back you can sew buttonholes and buttons, or use snap buttons.
The pattern provides you with the options to sew the back skirt piece somewhat longer than the front, or the same length. You can also choose long, short or ¾ length sleeves.
The pattern also includes a version of a tunic. Then the button placket extends all the way through the back, but you could choose for example to put buttons only on the top half for a summery version. For the tunic, you can also sew cute pockets to the front.
