My Lady Skater dress! I made the long sleeved version in size 2 with shortened bodice alteration of about 2.5 cm. My fabric is rather transparent zebra print jersey that I bought locally.
It was quite a quick project and I love the result! The skirt flares nicely and the fit is great. Too bad the zebra print fabric is rather transparent so I have to wear something underneath, but I can see more Lady Skater dresses in my future! Please excuse my shoeless feet in tights. I took photos in the tatami room so I couldn’t wear shoes except for some slipper boots. You can also see that I still have some leftover to turn Okowa into a zebra!
