The dress reminded me of something one might wear to a formal party….a “social” you might say. While the bright colors and bold pattern reminded me of something in an ice cream shoppe. I was sad that this would be the only time Lily would get to wear it. But, you know, as long as I have some sort of documentation of her in the dress I’m fine with giving it away.
I made the skirt by combining three inverted pleats on each side. I then pleated a large green cloth bow and sewed it into the dress. It was made to fit Lily but she is pretty small for a four-year-old.
My favorite part about this dress was the polka dot material that I bought while visiting Brian’s sisters in Philadelphia on “fabric row”. I bought it in a very tiny overpacked mom’n’pop shop that smelled like old people and fabric. Lily’s favorite part about this dress….the icecream.
