Ice Cream Dress

I made this Ice Cream Dress (Oliver and S pattern)  for Stella on Thursday.  I came down with another cold and fever that same day but I was determined.  Luckily the kids slept late (for them) and napped for three hours.  I really enjoyed the pattern.  There wasn't anything tricky about it and the instructions are so clear and detailed.  This is for Stella to wear on her birthday on the 25th.  I will have to get a picture of her in it then because whenever I go anywhere near her with this dress she runs away.  Maybe she won't wear it on her birthday.

Today I hope to start making her a matching bonnet.  I am still not feeling that great but I hate to waste a nap time with resting unless I have to.  I am also looking at patterns to make her a spring jacket.  I ordered a jacket from the Gap but it was too small and they don't have anymore in her size.  I can't find any other ones I like so I guess I have to make it.  I am in trouble if my kids are going to be as picky as I am.  Well maybe Luke already is.  When I showed him Stella's new dress he said it should be pink, was too plain, and needed some flowers on it.  He could be right but I still like it. 

I linked up today to Sew Country Chick - Sew and Tell Saturday

It is lovely !! and really summery.
Wow 3 hours !! I think my eldest daughter has had maybe 1 nap that lasted for 3 hours in her 5 yrs of life. . . I'm like you I always seem to find something more interesting to do rather than resting if I have some free time !

Hope you are feeling better.
