Buy the Olivia Dress sewing pattern from Made My Wardrobe. The Olivia Dress is a pinafore style wrap dress which can be worn on its own or over a top. We recommend the Amaya Shirt, but a simple t-shirt or turtleneck also looks great. It has lovely deep pockets, an adjustable waist tie and shoulder straps which cross at the back. If you are someone who loves the idea of wearing backless dresses but can’t go braless, the Josie Bra is the perfect match for this dress.
