And now let's welcome to the club... the Kitschy Coo Lady Skater Dress!
Pattern: This is my third time sewing up the Lady Skater, and it is definitely an easy sew, even in stripes! The size, construction, and everything is the same as the first two versions (in red ponte, and sequin stripes). I was able to construct this in an afternoon, even with my perfectionism about stripe placement ;)
Fabric: Mustard and Ivory Cotton Jersey Knit - Girl Charlee
This dress was directly inspired by Kelly's striped skater, made last year in the same fabric! I just loved the stripes and the colors and ordered the same fabric immediately :) Then it sat in the stash...until this week's cold front, which has made me crave 3/4 sleeve, comfy knit dresses!
The fabric is a bit thin, but so soft and cuddly. I should really make a tan slip for wearing under all those dresses I'm too lazy to line ;) Even though the stripes are printed on, it isn't stiff, and stretches quite nicely. My theory still stands that the less ink used, the better the fabric, when it comes to Girl Charlee knits.
