New York, New Yo...
this is my version of the Oliver & S Ice Cream Dress
I slightly changed the look of the dress by avoiding edgestitching and also understitched the hem by hand – always enjoyed hand sewing very much.
I had some problems with instructions for the V-notch on the neckline and pockets and blogged about it on my blog. Check it out if you are interested in a fail-proof way of handling the V-notch.
The print is Robert Kaufman screen print cotton, which I bought at B&J in NYC. The matching solid is a silk cotton blend. If you decide to buy Robert Kaufman print, pre-shrink it very carefully – mine got off-grain and I spent quite some time graining it – this made matching part of the project really challenging.
What do you think of these summery styles?
