Ice Cream Top and Puppet Show Shorts

15 Jun

We were able to escape the Boston rain this weekend and drive right on into summer. Just in time for this little weekend trip, I was able to finish view C of the Oliver &S  Ice Cream Dress using fabric by Michael Miller.  I cut the yoke fabric along the grain.  For the bodice, I cut the fabric on the bias. I also made another pair of Puppet Show Shorts in brown linen since H. has outgrown the black ones I made her last summer.  I do hope they reprint this pattern with larger sizes.  This is my favorite pattern for shorts.

H. prefers having the vintage button in the front. I think I might like that better too!

Here are a few more photos of H. in action as she was walking one of our dogs.

    I have to agree, I love these shorts soooo much. I’m loving her whole outfit, especially the fabric for that top. You have such a knack for cute fabric.
