I got a pretty package in the mail yesterday
with something even prettier inside:
Melanie of Queen of the Flies gave away two of these lovely Oliver + S Ice Cream Dresses last week, and I won the 3T! I never win anything! I was super excited she chose my name – I love this pattern (I’ve only tried the shirt version myself), and I happen to really love her take on the dress. The Joel Dewberry Sparrows and Kaffe Fassett shot cotton are a perfect fall combination, and it’s beautifully sewn, too. Her blog is worth checking out if you haven’t already – there’s a great tutorial for lengthening the back opening of the Ice Cream Dress (the reason for the giveaway) – perfect if your kid has a big head!
Thanks for the dress, Melanie! I couldn’t love it any more if I tried.
Lila only agreed to participate in my photo shoot if she could wear the dress over the clothes she already had on. So here you go:
As if the dress weren’t enough, this showed up yesterday, too:
It was a very good day for mail.
