One really fun part of the online sewing community is getting the chance to sew up other people’s patterns and tell you about them. It’s no surprise to anyone that I love to sew knit dresses. My friend, Amanda, recently came out with a great knit dress pattern. I love the shape. Easy wear bodice and a fun skirt that can twirl. I was am so happy to be joining the pattern tour! I give you The Skater Dress.
Super cute, right?? The Skater Dress pattern comes in sizes 1/2, 3/4, 5/6, and 7/8. With just 4 sizes to choose from you can’t go wrong! I used size 3/4 and my daughter is usally a solid size 4. The bodice fit perfectly! I shortened the dress about 3-4″ to fall right at knee length for her.
When most people think of a skater dress I’m pretty sure they think ice skating. But here in the OC it’s just skateboarding that comes to mind. She bought this skateboard with her Christmas money. Got to start them young!
Make sure you stop by Kitschy Coo and check out Amanda’s blog and shop. Besides great patterns, she also sells AWESOME knits. She’s in the UK so if you’re there you’re in for a treat. Of course, you can buy them from anywhere if you want to pay the shipping. You won’t find knits like these anywhere else.
