Ice Cream Dress

So excited to have made something I've had in mind forever! When I saw the fabric, I immediately knew what I was going to make with it - an ice cream dress, and I managed to crank it out just in time for Easter (so technically an ice cream Easter dress)!

The fabric is a beautiful poplin and is from the Little Lisette line - I loooove the print, the color, the feel, everything. The print also comes in white - I'm going to have to get some! (As a side note, Lisette's parent Oliver + S has a great series called Principles of Fabric Selection that I have found wonderfully helpful in picking prints for apparel - I highly recommend it.)

I followed the tutorial for the Leah Tunic to create the pattern for the dress. It was a bit snug at first, so I had to extend the opening in the back to help make putting it on a little easier.

 I cut some extra bodice pieces from a white muslin to line the bodice as well.

Ester girl loved it and showed it by jumping and twirling on the coffee table for a good bit, "I cream! I cream!"

Here she is all styled up for our Easter morning breakfast at the diner - it was pretty chilly and windy so we had to bundle her up a bit, but I think bare legs would be cuter with this dress!

Hurray for ice cream dress! I can't wait to make this pattern again.

Hope everyone had a cozy Easter!
