I recently picked up a few patterns from Oliver + S, a super sweet line of sewing patterns for children’s clothes, for the Home Made shop. Perhaps it’s my nostalgia for warmer days and/or my everlasting love for ice cream (which I’m sure began as a child but was solidified after serving up ice cream at The Custard Hut for 7+ years) that inspired me . . .
For my first Oliver + S sample stitching, I chose to make this Ice Cream Dress. It reminds me of Strawberry Shortcake, which I remember being a short-lived, cult-favorite flavor at The Hut. I used Timeless Treasures’ Sketch Solids in Coral and Tula Pink’s Topiary in Sprout. It turned out pretty cute, don’t you think?
And, it would be super cute with tights, boots, and a cardigan on whatever-aged little girl wears a size 7 (though, the pattern is available in sizes 0-6M through +12) so she can wear it all year. Eating ice cream all year is a given.
Next, I’ll have to stitch up a pair of these Oliver + S pajamas for my nephew Finn! But, before that I’m just going to have to make myself some ice cream. Maybe a milkshake. Vanilla. Or, as my grandmother/former boss at The Custard Hut would call it, a van-eller milkshake with some ex-tree van-eller syrup. (:
Oliver + S sewing patterns are available for purchase in the Home Made shop, along with a fun selection of soft cottons and flannels for your stitching pleasure.
