Sewing Stream: An Ice Cream Dress for a Birthday

One of Miss H's little friends had a birthday last week, so she and I decided that a fun dress would make a nice gift. We went through my fabric stash and picked this blue flower fabric and some contrasting red Moda solid. After looking through all my favorite patterns that I already had traced in a size 2T, I chose the Oliver + S Ice Cream Dress.


The dress went together so quickly! I don't know if it was because of my familiarity with this pattern or if my sewing skill have improved in the last couple years, but it was much easier than I remember! The only modifications I made were to not use the red contrasting band at the bottom of the dress (not enough red fabric left), and to change the button to a snap.
