    Love the Octavia pattern. With the partial ruched bodice this makes a great addition to your kids closet. Make it as a top or as a dress and you won't be dissapointed.

    This one is so uniquely beautiful! I love the special bodice and unique way of closing this one has as well as the ruching.

    This is another great pattern from CKC. I was a little wary of the ruched bodice but the instructions were clear and the dress turned out beautifully! I will definitely make this one again!
