Neve’s been after me for a while to use some of my London-themed fabric to make her a dress, so this weekend I went through my patterns and we decided on the Ice Cream Dress from Oliver & S.
I used some Riley Blake fabric wit complimenting colors and patterns and cut it out two days ago. Today I got to work on it all day and was done in just a few hours.
It was a breeze to throw together; though I think I might personally prefer this pattern made up in a soft knit. Neve is pretty happy with it, though.
I did the bottom panel and the pocket yokes in the contrast fabric but left the top yoke in the main fabric.
I’m curious to see how it drapes after several washes and wearings; the fabric still has quite a bit of stiffness to it.
I can’t wait to try this pattern again; there are so many different fabric options that would be super cute with it!
She looks fantastic! Great job, Mom!
