The last of the three Lady Skater dresses

There will be no modelled photos of this third dress, it really does not suit me.
The fabric is gorgeous quality Lillestoff, bought at Sewing For Pleasure in March last year. I only bought a metre, not sure what I would do with it.
When rummaging through my fabrics looking for appropriate fabric to make more Lady Skater dresses, it popped out, but with only a metre to play with I could not have sleeves, and I had to cut the skirt quite short, though no shorter than on the red floral dress.


Honestly, I messed up on the arm holes, the band is too loose, but also the shoulders are too wide. I could fix this, but despite loving the fabric, it just looks horrible on me.


I have offered it to India, but she doesn't like it either. I'm currently debating cutting it down into a relaxed weekend skirt, or a "ate too many pies skirt" as my friend Mary calls them!
I think then I might wear it, the pattern would be away from my face and not stretched across my boobs, which is really where it looks most horrendous!


Don't be shy, say hello!


  1. If you love the print, I'm sure you can salvage something from this (looks good on the hanger!) how about reattaching the skirt to a different / contrasting top?

    1. Good idea! Not sure why I didn't think of that. :)

  2. What a shame, the skirt ounds like a great idea.


Hi, I love to hear from readers, hate to think I'm talking to myself here, so don't be shy say hello!
