I recently realized that my oliver + s Ice Cream Dress pattern, bought long ago, was still untouched. Since my copy is the 6 month to 4 year size-range—and my little girl will soon be FIVE!—I felt some urgency to sew this one up.
I bought the main fabric, which is from an older line of the Little Lisette Collection from Jo-Ann (also by Liesl of oliver + s), especially for this pattern, so it too had been sitting around a while.
Still, Louisa loves her "Ice Cream Dress" so I am happy. The pink fabric is hand-me-down yardage from a friend—just some regular cotton.
Does a project count as "stash-busting" if you use fabric that was originally purchased for it but that became "stashed" over time (read: procrastination)?
The pockets were tedious, but essential. The yoke was a little tricky in the back, but over all this dress was pretty quick and easy.
