Ice Cream Dress

My first Oliver & S Ice Cream Dress. It has only taken a couple of years to buy the pattern and get around to making one. I made the 12-18m size for a present. It looks huge at the moment, but luckily children don't shrink and it should fit for the second half of next summer.
There is not much to say about this pattern that hasn't been said before. If you want a good summary of it see the Sew-a-Long from a couple of years ago. As always with Oliver & S patterns I made it exactly as the pattern said to and noted little changes I would make next time. Nothing huge, I just have preferred ways of doing some things.
I bought the bigger size as well as my girls love to wear smocks and dresses over shirts and leggings so I think this will be perfect for them.

This is gorgeos!! is there a pdf pattern do you know? I would love to try this but am new to sewing...is it very difficult?

I'm not sure about the PDF Pattern, you will have to go to Oliver and S and have a look. Not very difficult, but none of their patterns are very very easy.
