Floral IceCream

March 4, 2016

This dress is what i call slow-sewing… I took my time (almost 3 weeks) to finish it and only because i worked on it when i absolutely wanted to and couldn’t be more pleased with the result.

The dress is meant for Ms J to be worn for Pongal festival but didn’t get to finish on time as i didn’t want to rush it. Here she is dressed-up to attend her Aunt’s birthday party.

Pattern: IceCream Dress by Oliver+S, View A without pockets.
Size: 2T
Fabric: Stretch Poplin and veg-dyed handloom cotton(same as Ms H’s skirt here)
No Changes to the pattern pieces at all but the back closure is modified to include two discreet snap buttons. A little cut into the back body (which is finished with a bias tape) for more head room while getting on and off.

Of-course a little bit of flat piping at the very last minute and french side seams. I decided to include the piping just before i top stitched the main yoke to the body, so i basted it before i top stitched the yoke in place.

I confused myself with the hem instructions and had to to rip quite a few stitches. (nothing wrong with the instructions)

I ordered a metre of the handloom cotton (used for the hem and for H’s skirt here) and still left with a decent piece, just enough for size 4 yoke. Since Ms H already put a request for a top in the floral fabric… May be an Icecream top for her?
