I have recently made this Lady Skater dress. I have never made anything from a PDF pattern before, but I think I will do so again! I like having access to it repeatedly without having to buy it again or spend time tracing if I don’t want to.
The fabric is this Paisley Cotton Jersey from Mood Fabrics. I had a friend request I use it for a maxi dress for her, but I fell in love with it and ordered enough for myself, too! I did find it to be a bit sheer, so I found some white rayon jersey at the local Jo-Ann’s to do an underlining. They are both super soft and comfortable.
I didn’t make any changes to the pattern, just cut a straight size 4 with 3/4 length sleeves. I think it fits pretty well! Next time, though, I may make a few changes. It’s a smidge short, but at least I have great legs! Ha! Anyway, I may add about 2″ next time, especially if I end up with a lighter fabric that could be kicked up by the wind! Or, if I happen to trip, as I am pretty clumsy:
I may also lengthen the bodice another small bit, maybe an inch or so. Maybe not. But I will definitely try a different sleeve length, just for variety. And, either way, I’ll be making this again!
