The Ice Cream Dress

Wow…there’s been quite a lot of sewing going on around these parts lately.  It has been lovely!  I fell in love with the Oliver and S Ice Cream dress the moment I saw it.  What’s not to love in a simple, quick as a wink to make, easy breezy summer dress!  The thing with summer dresses around here is that they change with the weather to be worn over pants in the fall and covered with a cardigan in the winter and worn again as tunics in the spring.  They are all season pieces…so practical…so perfect!  With only pockets of sewing time here and there it is always reassuring to know that the things that make it out of the studio corner completed will be used for longer than the time that it took to make them!!! 

Oh…and did you know that wearing the Ice Cream dress necessitates eating ice cream! 

I do believe this will be the first of many Ice Cream dresses! May 385
