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.
