I’m SOOO excited to be the one to kick off the Sew Many Books series this year. I’m sharing my Sew Many Books Olivia post today with my adorable niece as my model. My boys love the Olivia books and I love the clothes she wears… I was excited to use the books to create a cute and functional play outfit. Before we get to more pictures have you entered the giveaway? And read about the sew a long?!?! GO HERE!
Riley Blake Designs sponsored the fabric for this post. THANKS!!!
So cute, right? I used more the theme of Olivia’s dress rather than an exact replication. I actually think her jumper is super cute, but my niece isn’t even 2, so I wanted something more comfortable for her. The out fit is three parts, so can be worn together or mixing and matching with other clothes.
The striped knit from Riley Blake is SO amazingly soft and has amazing stretch. I was with my mom when I got it, and she loved it so much she about 10 yards to make the grandkids Christmas Pjs out of it!
Let’s talk patterns…
For the skirt, I just made it up. It’s a simple elastic waist skirt with pockets.
The top is from the Peek a Book Lullaby Line, you can get the pattern here.
The leggings are the free pattern from Go TO Patterns. Its actually only through 12 months, but I found it easy to upsize.
I think it’s safe to call this playwear as my niece had a blast running around the back yard in this Sew Many Books Olivia outfit.
Wow, looks at those blue eyes! Thanks for being an sweet model and a sweet girl.
Okay, don’t forget to enter the giveaway before you leave and come back on Wed. for another gorgeous book inspired post!
So cute. Olivia is a favorite!

Though I like Dylan Thomas’ poem and I like Burton’s read (I even liked the hiss) I found the visuals a bit boring. Which proves, if nothing else, that advertising is utterly subjective.P.S. I bet the best bits were taken out by the leaden hand of the client.

Why is anyone surprised by this action by Frelinghuysen? The Congressman hasn’t had an independent vote in over 8 years. He voted more times against issues that affected his constituency and was still re-elected. Why, because most people don’t care or are watching Fox News. I remember when people read Newspapers everyday and some actually read several a day. They understood what was happening in their country and communities. People are not informed anymore of the important issues and how the vote of their Congressional representative affects their lives.

UsOrThem –I haven’t talked to Virgil in a while, but I assume his stance hasn’t changed. He’s the one who got himself in hot water with CAIR and ISNA for objecting to Keith Ellison taking his oath of office on the Koran. That’s how politically incorrect he is.
