With these ice creams you immediately think of summer right?! At least I do. When I saw this fabric I knew our girl would love the fabric and the dress that would be made from it.
This time I wasn't selected during the testing period for the Foras Dress* so instead I just bought it right away when it came out. I knew it would be another great hit from Sofilantjes. What is great about the Foras dress is the dropped waist. It gives a different silhouette and when you add a circle skirt, like I did, you do not need as much fabric as you would for a regular circle skirt.
Another eye catcher are the side panels, which are also pockets. Of course you need pockets when sewing a dress like this. I love the visual effect of these side panels. Once you buy the Foras Dress you can use for a very long time as the size range goes from 12M to 14Y.
When our girl saw the dress, she liked the ice creams of course, but when she put it on, she fell in love with it. That twirl! That wins over every girl (at least in our household). I think more Foras dresses will follow, also with long sleeves, which are perfect for cooler weather (until a new pattern is released by Sofilantjes and we just have to buy that one ;). Since I made the neckband from jersey I added some extra length, however it was not enough so I added another piece of fabric. I used a different color, which works perfect for our girl and my husband to know what the back of the dress is when putting it on.
