Catty little dress


More wishful sewing, but I made another Lady Skater. This time I used long sleeves and shortened the bodice a half inch. The print is a little much and the knit is not the best quality. One of those "If I just spend eight more dollars I get free shipping" purchases. I think it made a great Lady Skater though. I figured if I'm going to use a bold print I better own it and wear it all over. I love it and have already worn it to work with quite a few compliments.


Here it is without the belt. It looks fine, the belt just breaks it up a bit. The waist seam is reinforced with clear elastic which I think is genius. Can I tell you, this dress is so comfortable. It is like wearing a T-shirt and no pants. How much better can it get? I love knit dresses, especially long sleeved ones.


The neckband I basted with my machine first, then serged it. I then used my twin needle to finish it off. It looks great.


The sleeves on this version has cuffed sleeves. I love how it looks and this method is so easy. These I just serged on the used my twin needle. Overall this dress from cutting to hemming took under three hours.  


I think my assistant and I have our Halloween costumes too. I could be a leopard and she could be a tiger!
