Floral Skaterfrew - Spring 2014

Added Feb 22, 2014

Brooklyn, New Yo...






My dress was completely inspired by the fabric. I had no maxi dresses planned until this floral knit arrived at Grey’s Fabric and Notions. I knew it had to be mine, actually Sarah knew it had to be mine because she instagramed a photo addressed to me. EVIL! But you don’t argue with destiny.

      Thank you. I love how comfortable maxi dresses are to wear. They are really hard to beat.

    Love this fabric and maxi dress. I am obsessed with maxi dresses at the moment – currently in the process of finding the perfect maxi dress for my perfect fabric. (Alas it is not a knit and the weather here is pretty damn hot, so the skaterfrew is not an option).

      Too bad it is so hot because skaterfrews are so comfortable to wear. Good luck on your pattern hunt. Have you seen Ralph Pinks maxi dress pattern? http://ralphpink-patterns.com/product/rp023/ Maybe a sleeveless version?

    Your floral Skaterfrew is absolutely beautiful and you look amazing in it. Thank-you for your detailed alteration instructions on your blog and your evil friend is very kind to have pointed out to you this divine fabric. I am sure you are going to get much pleasure from your new dress. I love the photos of New Orleans cemetery which I visited many years ago and found fascinating.
