Oliver + S: After- School Shirt + Pants Sewing Pattern (5-12)
Girl's and boy's pants and top pattern. This pattern features a loose-fitting pull-on shirt with long sleeves, a bateau neck, and a sweet offset button detail at the front and back yokes. The pull-on, elastic-waist pants include a separate side panel, which allows for use of a contrast trim near the hem. An alternate view of the pants includes ruffle details at the front pocket opening and at the back.
