It's never too cold for Ice Cream.

I haven't been sewing lately because, well, the kids don't need any clothes at the moment!  If I was smart I would probably start on spring sewing as our weather starts to warm in March.  This is kind of spring-ish, I suppose.  


The Oliver + s Ice Cream Dress, size 2T with length.  I have made this pattern quite a few times, but it has been quite a while.  I always get nervous when it comes to attaching the back yoke so I tend to shy away from this one.  


Not too bad this time though, in my opinion.  Though the corner by the button could be better, someday I will make it perfect:)



Girlfriend hearts the pockets.  She has spent all day putting toys in them.



I originally planned to use the stripes for the yoke and hem band with the flower as the body of the dress, but then I thought it would be a fun subtle detail to alternate the stripes.

I have another custom order from a friend who is heading on a Disney Cruise, I am quite excited about what she picked!   Plus, this way I can get a little sewing in while not creating more unneeded laundry for me, ha!

  3. I love the way you have used the stripes. I was just thinking how cute this was and then scrolled down to see the print on the inside hem. How perfect is that?! Double cute in my opinion.
    I am just going for it and making a couple of summer dresses for the girls. I am so sick of seeing them in their current clothes, I need a change on their behalf!
