As with all of the Oliver + S patterns I've tried so far, this came together easily and beautifully. I love the level of finish their patterns have and I always learn something new - in this case, how to properly line a pocket. The only thing that was a tad annoying about the pattern was that you needed to have the child to hand to position and sew on the final pieces of velcro. With Miss B living an hour and a half away and this being a gift, I had to guess and guessed wrong. But the straps were long enough to be able to tie them round her waist so she could use the carrier straight away. I love how it turned out and I know I would have loved one for my baby doll.
Here's the carrier modelled by my favourite childhood baby doll, and then by little Miss B & Annabel.
