The Gelato is a great pattern to wear year round. The short-sleeved dress is perfect for summer, and the peplum works well for spring and fall. I even made the blouse in a cozy flannel last winter, for a dressier take on a flannel shirt. If you haven’t tried the pattern yet, maybe some of these beautiful versions will inspire you.

The folks who run Sew My Style are also hosting a bingo game for the duration of Me Made May. Every time you wear a garment from a particular company’s pattern, you can mark the square until you have bingo. You can check out the bingo card they made here.
Have you tried the Gelato pattern yet? What fabric would you use?
