About this group »


Welcome to our ice cream social. Where I grew up, ice cream socials were all about community. We came together to eat and smile. We hope this sewalong with Oliver+S's ice cream dress builds a community in much the same way. To learn, laugh and make with each other!

Thank you to everyone who made the ice cream social a huge success. It's been so much fun to be apart of this virtual community. The best part is the support and encouragement!
