    I actually made two dresses for my Granddaughters. The pattern was easy to download and easy to put together. I did struggle with the very first ruffle, but soon figured out what i was doing wrong. I made sizes 3 and 5 and they fit perfectly. I added a small piece of elastic to the back of the spaghetti strap when attaching it to the dress, just to make it easier for the girls to put on. I have used and will continue to use Oliver+S patterns.

    A delightfully girly dress without being fussy. The pattern design works well with plains but handles a large scale print beautifully. The two pieces can be worn together as a layered frock, the slip dress alone or the tunic with shorts or leggings. I blogged a tutorial for the slip dress here. http://fiveandcounting-motherof5.blogspot.com.au/2013/03/pinwheel-slip-dress-tutorial.html Forget all the bad things you have read about PDF patterns. Oliver+s do them so well. All the smaller pattern pieces are printed on individual sheets and the larger pieces fit together so well.
