This weekend I was very excited to finally try out the Lady Skater Pattern from Kitschy Coo.
I had bought some red organic cotton from fabric.com specifically for it and couldn’t wait to cut into it. I mean, seriously – a dress that’s made to be flattering out of easy-to-care-for and comfortable tee shirt fabric?
I am super happy with it. I did have to take it down a few sizes from where I thought I should be. Even after measuring it was too big the first go around. I honestly could probably even take another inch out of the waist area, but right now I am just enjoying the swing of the skirt and the softness of the fabric.
I haven’t hemmed the bottom yet; with knits like this it’s best to wear them a few times to let the fabric settle out where it’s going to fall before adding a hem. Also, it was a pretty clean cut so I may not need to hem at all, if I don’t want it to be super “finished”. It’s got a tiny bit of a natural “roll” right now that I am kind of digging.
I really want to make one in every color now. I think this one is going to look fantastic with my Shepherd sweater once it’s done, in all its creamy oatmeal-brownness!
And shut up about my hair. I know it’s waaay overdue and my roots like terrible.
I’ll get to it.
Yes, this is a really great pattern! I am trying all kinds of modifications right now because I am so happy about the fit.
I think it would look even better on you if you raise the waistline a bit so that it hits the narrowest part of your body.
The dress is beautiful and you look fantastic in it. Great job!
