blue polka dot ice cream shirt

Ok, how’s about that little look Miss C is giving me? LOL! It’s like she’s telling me with her eyes to hurry it up and finish so she can play with her new Squinkie. (our new form of model payment around here) Either that or she’s plotting to break into my chocolate stash…which is NOT ok. Mama needs her chocolate.

Then 2 seconds later she threw herself dramatically on the ground (a recent thing she discovered is “fun”??) and gave me this pouty face. I just had to laugh. A lot. Which made her say, “NO! Not funny! I MAD!”

She says this phrase at least 45 times a day….it’s quite hilarious for the first 5.

ANYWAYS. I had this blue fabric all cut out for an ice cream dress but didn’t have the right white fabric to match the dots, so it got made into a shirt! I quite like the simplicity of the blue and white dots, and just had to add some piping in the seams! I wish it was smaller piping, but that’s what I had on hand. Again, I made a 2T and while it’s a tad large on her, it’s so cute that I’m glad she can wear it for awhile! It’s not my best work on the back-the piping was tricky to insert smoothly in that seam, and I still don’t know if I’m doing that part right, but it’s wearable!

The fabric is Dot in Blue – Stitch Studio Designs by Cyndi Walker – Marguerite, from my sponsor, Lily Bella Fabrics!

Oh and I made her headband flower using this tutorial. 🙂
