B has inherited M's Tulip Pants and there weren't really any tops in their combined wardrobe that matched other than the Nightingale Tunic and M wasn't relinquishing that.
I know, the pants are navy, basically a basic go with most anything color. That's what I thought, until I paired it with B's other tops...pale pink and black stripes, cream and pastel stripes, floral on a creme background w/ brown accents, pink w/ brown leopard spots...nope, not a one of those looked right.
Even worse, none of the prints I have in my fabric stash looked good either.
Except for one...
It's a thin knit and probably wasn't the best fabric for this top but the colors were right on and it will go well with most any pair of pants.
This is the second time I've used the Oliver+S Sailboat top but the first time with sleeves. I traced a size 5 for my growing little girls...it's an itty bitty bit big but should *fingers crossed* fit until summer because of that. No problems with the pattern, it's another great one!

I'm adding a couple of new Oliver+S patterns to my stash...the Hopscotch Skirt + Knit Top and the Ice Cream Dress, just in time for spring sewing!
