Ice Cream, You Scream,

We all scream for ice cream colors! Especially in summer.

Summer always brings back childhood memories of selling lemonade, bike rides, reading Beverly Cleary books, and the ice cream truck coming through my sunny SoCal neighborhood (at which point I would run into the house like I had a jet pack strapped to my back while screeching at about 200 decibels "MOOOOOOOM! The ice cream man is coming!!! We need moneeeeeeeey!!!"). No summer was ever complete without pastel colored ice cream and - if there was money left over - a pack of Charlie's Angels bubble gum cards.

And now that I'm all grown up, I'm making clothes and bags in ice cream colors for the summer.

Pink and white striped sundress with frilly straps and belt in super lightweight cotton seersucker. Lined in light-as-air cotton, above the knee and partly smocked in the back so it's fitted on top. Handmade to order in sizes XS to M. Very limited edition (in other words, when my limited quantity of striped pink and white seersucker runs out!).

Another Soft French Lace Tote, because I can't get enough of these and if you look through my past collections you'll see that I've always added lace embellishments to the things I make. I love the tote in this particular color. It reminds me of key lime pie, or lime sherbet. The lining is a different shade but similar in color. Together they look like a pastel-colored bonbon.
