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!
