Kitschy Coo really killed it with this pattern – it is perfection! Excellent construction, easy to follow directions, super flattering cut, and an instant gratification project. This definitely won’t be the last Lady Skater that I sew.
I made this with a pumpkin rayon knit from Mood. It’s more of a medium weight, which I prefer because I am not frequently seeking a slinky knit. Despite using a twin needle, my hem turned out a bit wavy – oh well. I made the entire dress, including putting together the PDF pattern pieces, in one afternoon.
