Sunday Brunch Jacket & A-Line Skirt

Oliver + S Sunday Brunch Jacket & A-Line Skirt by Courtney, Fairbrother-Davies

Cindy has sewn quite a few Oliver + S patterns and made this Sunday Brunch Jacket & A-Line Skirt pattern in a size 8. She writes, “The pattern (as are all of Liesl’s) is incredibly straightforward and easy to follow. The only possible suggestions I would have are to check the sleeve length: even though I was sewing for a very tall girl, the sleeves were about 2 inches too long. Other than that, the fit is lovely.”  The Sunday Brunch Jacket & A-Line Skirt pattern is offered in two size ranges, 6-12mo – 3T and 4 – 8 yrs.

Pattern Info:
From the pattern package: Girl’s jacket and skirt. Double-breasted unlined jacket has band collar, gathered empire waist, and cuffed long sleeves. Optional bias trim to finish facing edge and seam allowances. A-line skirt with front pockets and back kick pleat with elasticized back waistband.
