Floral Lady Skater Dress By Kitschycoo

The Lady Skater, what can I say……I finally understand why everyone is raving about it!

The Lady Skater is a PDF pattern by Kitschycoo. I sewed a straight 3 and it fits perfectly! The only change I made was to shorten the bodice by a 1/2 inch. I had read a lot of reviews and it seemed like the consensus was the bodice was a little too long. I probably could shorten it by another 1/2 inch.

The knit fabric I used for this dress actually has an interesting back story. While “instagraming” one evening I came across a picture by Lauren Dahl of a cardigan she was sewing in a beautiful floral knit. I asked her where she got it and sadly she responded that it was from a local shop. Then she messaged me and offered to go to the shop, pick up some more, and mail it to me! What?!?! YES, please! Stories like this are why I love blogging. You can connect with such awesome people who share the same passion as you! Thanks again Lauren!

  1. I love your skater dress! I also found that one has to take up the waist but otherwise great pattern! You need to try her Penny pinafore, just released its another gorgeous pattern!!

  2. I really think you have to try this pattern to understand why everyone loves it, then you will start dreaming of more versions of it, which I am sure you already have! This is a beautiful knit, glad you also love this pattern

  3. REALLY cute dress – and I love the story about the fabric! People who sew (and people who garden) are just the nicest folks! That was super sweet of her to do that :)

    Love the pattern – I’ll have to add that to my ‘want’ list.
