Ruffle halter: free pattern by oliver + s

Its no secret that I love the patterns by Oliver + s. So, when they offered me (and the whole wide web) another free pattern, I jumped at the chance! You can download the pattern through the Oliver + s blog. The pattern was provided by Stitch magazine. There are heaps of other free downloads on their site too, you just have to become a member. I am sure I will be making more projects from there!

I downloaded it and put together the pattern pieces. I carefully followed
 the instructions and put it together. I really liked how there were only the two raw edges that needed edging, so I didn't really need to get out the overlocker. It also didn't take very long to make either, so that's another bonus!

I highly recommend trying out the pattern, as it is really easy to make. Chloe will gets lots of use from the shirt when summer comes around, but for now, it will have to go over a long sleeve t-shirt.

I am off to the Sydney quilt market tomorrow, and when I get back, I will be sharing a sneak peak of the new block of the month, which I am sure you will love as much as I do.

Thanks for stopping by, and remember to leave a comment so I know I'm not just talking to myself (which happens a lot at the best of times)!
