Have I mentioned I love Oliver + s patterns? No? 😉 This is the Ice Cream dress sewing pattern by of course Oliver + s sewn in Heather Ross’ Cricket from her Briar Rose collection. It’s sewn in size 4 length and 3 width.
I modified the pattern a bit by making it into a tunic using the dress view A pattern pieces but leaving off the bottom band and instead lengthening the top piece by an inch and a half.
This fabric and pattern are just perfect together! I wish I could take credit for pairing them first, but no, I’ve seen other ice cream shirts/dresses in this print. This may be the first tunic though!
Glamour shot. I love the notches at the neckline and pockets. I wasn’t sure at first if I would like them but I really do especially with the allover print I used! They add a little something special plus some visual interest that doesn’t get overwhelmed by the print.
Look mom! A squirrel!
If you’ve not tried out any Heather Ross fabrics in your sewing, please do! Just look at that adorable cricket.
This tunic was an instant favorite plus it’s perfect for the warm spring days (yes it’s finally warm!) of Montana. So glad I sewed this one up!
