Description

This is a skater dress made from the Sewaholic Renfrew pattern. I altered the bodice to make it more fitted and cut off at the waist. I also had to take a lot out of the length of the back and had to fiddle to get the bodice side seams to match. I then added a circle skirt. The skirt is a bit too big at the waist so it’s gathered in at the waist. I don’t mind as this adds to the twirliness of the dress!
