Stripes! I love a knit with stripes. After making my first garment with the Lady Skater patten by Kitschy Coo I decided to give it another try. I had ordered this super soft knit from fabric.com for a piece I had wanted to sew up for Project Sewn. Just never got around to making what I thought I was going to, so it ended up being the perfect amount and fabric for a Lady Skater.
I do love the fit of this dress. Even though I’m not one for wearing dresses much, this one is just super comfy and casual I know I’ll wear it a lot. I had first sewed it before I had any clear elastic so I substituted regular 1/4” elastic. I think that it would have been okay if the fabric had been thicker, but with this knit it made the seam wavy and stiff. So I finished the dress anyway and stuck it in my closet. The other day I remembered to pick up some clear elastic and fixed that waistline! It didn’t take very long to fix and it made the dress just perfect fitting in my opinion.
I will definitely enjoy wearing it, especially when it warms up a bit!
