I managed to get all the items on my To Do list ticked off yesterday. So I treated myself to a little sewing last night. I made the top version of the Ice Cream Dress.
I know the Ice Cream Social doesn't start for a little while; but my pattern arrived from Duckcloth in record time, and I just couldn't resist. It's so lovely to sew someone else's patterns for a change. And Liesl's patterns are so beautifully accurate.
My favourite part of this design is the little V detail at the neck. Pressing this into place after sewing it up is so satisfying.
The last thing I did was sew a nametag into the back of the top - partly so I could record the size. Usually Townmouse labels go into everything I make, but I loved using the first of my stash of Adelaide's nametags.
I couldn't resist a little wardrobe planning for our next beach holiday. Puppet Show Shorts in Cotton/Linen, cardigan from Petit Bateau, shoes from Seed.
I wouldn't mind the same top in my size.
