A book by its cover
A long list

Ice Cream Social

I've joined the Ice Cream Social.  Amy from Badskirt has organised a sewalong for this Oliver + S pattern.

Today I dropped into my local quilt shop to seek out the pattern.  While I was there, and with my two youngest underfoot, I quickly picked out a few fabrics for the sewalong.

Ice cream top

This pretty print is in a light voile cotton that has a very silky handle and drape.  I fancied this for the top (View C of the pattern), with some Puppet Show Shorts in the blue.

Ice cream dress

This Joel Dewberry tree print I couldn't resist.  I don't know if the yellow will be Adelaide's colour so it might not make it into a dress.  That was the intent when buying it though.

Ice cream top and bloomers

This pretty grey with white spot will make a sweet pair of Puppet Show Shorts to wear with white tops.  So I think I'll make the Ice Cream Top in a white of some sort.  I also bought Adelaide a pretty white Bonpoint top in Paris which she can wear with these shorts in summer.  Then a little pair of Bensimon Tennis shoes in white will finish the look.

I love the very top fabric with the blue and pink colourway pattern - do you know who it's by?

The fabrics in the first photo are ... beautiful.. I love them. The printed fabric...sigh. I wish I lived in Melbourne.
