Ice Cream Dress

Oh dear, I'd forgotten how fun it is to sew little dresses. This Nicey Jane fabric used to be the bumper pads Jessica made for Micah's crib. I love reusing stuff, don't you? Jess picked the Oliver & S Ice Cream Dress. The fabric was a little less than eighteen inches across so I could only make a 6 - 12 month size. The solid is from Joann's. 
After seeing a version with a rounded collar, Jess decided that was the look she wanted. The button adds a bit of interest. Both the front and the closure button were some I had in my stash. They don't match but they coordinate with the fabric in a fun way.

 I added the bias trim to try and distract from the not so well matched strip I had to add to make it long enough.... 
I kinda love it.


  1. I love this! I wish you had enough fabric to make me one in my size - but for that you'd need at least a proper bed sheet lol

  2. Awwwwwww, so cute and sweet and girlie!

  3. I love it a lot. Too cool that you recycled that fabric. It's too lovely to be discarded.

  4. It's adorable! And a cute story of what it started out as. I like the bias trim! You should do that even when you aren't hiding seams! :)

  5. Love those rich colors! The trim looks like it's supposed to be there. Gorgeous corinnea!
