Chocolate or Vanilla?

Amy from Australia has set up a great sew-along for the Ice Cream Dress by Oliver and S. You may click on the button above to connect to her site.

This is a very beginner-friendly project. We have the pattern in stock and lots of fabulous fabrics!

We thought that such a fun idea deserves an ice cream social. On Sunday, August 1 and 8 from 2-4:30pm we're hosting a free class for the Ice Cream dress.

Purchase your fabric and pattern from Knit One Smock Too and you'll receive an invitation to the free workshop. Beginning Sewers are especially encouraged to attend!

Of course, we'll be serving lots of ice cream!!

Ice cream and sewing--what could be better?
