DSC_0562This skater style dress is a new ‘no frills’ pattern from Madeit Patterns. The pattern is to the same standard but the instructions are more basic (not for beginners) as the pattern is simple enough to make for a more experienced home sewer, and it is sold at a ‘no frills’ sort of price.DSC_0536The pattern can also be used in combination with any of the neckline options of the groove dress pattern, but I chose to make a basic round neckline with long sleeves and pockets. There are basic instructions but I didn’t actually look at them as it was a simple enough and quick project to make. The perfect antidote to finishing up sewing 2 pairs of jeans which with all the changing threads and a machine that chokes on top stitching thread was a real bore.DSC_0574Skater dresses aren’t honestly my favourite style but as you can probably tell from the pictures someone is pretty smitten with it. The spin factor plus dusty pink flora fabric by Elvelyckan Design from Maud’s Fabric Finds turned out to be a winning combination.DSC_0583Literally jumping for joy about this one.DSC_0598And just when I thought it wasn’t the sort of dress you wanted to sit down in…DSC_0724

  1. So beautiful Toya. I hope one day you will change your mind about the classic skater dress, it’s a style that little girls really love. Your version of Spin with that gorgeous fabric is perfection in my eyes.
