Pattern: Oliver + S Rollerskate Dress
Fabric: Japanese Kokka cotton linen blend bought at last summer's quilt show
lining: green polka dot quilting cotton
Trim: matches the fabric I can't remember where I bought it
I bought this pattern last year I think. I was on a modern fabric buying kick and I thought this pattern would be good for those fabrics. Well those fabrics aren't my favorites right now. But I really wanted to make this pattern along with all the other patterns I have bought and not tried yet. I have so much fabric I wanted to use something from my stash. So this is what I came up with.
I am pretty happy with it.
I cut it out yesterday and sewed it all today. And I am slow. This pattern is so easy and quick to make with great directions which I really need. I really enjoyed making this. I think I'll have to make this one next summer too.
My kids love it. They love Little Red Riding Hood which is why I think they are so into this dress. While sewing my son kept coming in to tell me it "looks really good". As you can see Stella thinks so too. When it came time to try it on she insisted on wearing this hat she picked out at Target in the spring. She cracks me up. So here are too many pictures:
