I've had plans to make the Oliver & S Sailboat outfit since last spring. I love that the pattern is simple and basic with just the right amount of classic and modern.
So I finally got .around to it. I started with the top sewn in a hot pinkish-red knit that I got at Joann's. The constuction was fairly easy and straightforward. I had a little problem with the buttonholes though. But that's ok since the buttons covered up my less than sterling workmanship. The knit actually drapes beautifully. I can see myself making more of these, one in every color and some stripeys too.
Then I made the pants. Hot pink as well, with white piping and buttons. I quite like the garish color paired with that classic sailor look.
They are a bit loose on her, but hopefully will fit her this spring. So there you are: a hot pink outfit for a hot pink girl.
