Lady Skater dress and More MeMadeMay...

Hello! Friday morning I finished up a new Lady Skater Dress.

On Fridays, in the Me Made May flickr group there is a theme, just as another fun challenge for us, today's theme was blue.  Easy enough.

I had two blue dresses cut out and ready to sew already, but I chose this one because it's the faster of the two to make. It takes me about a day in my crazy house to assemble a knit dress.

The fabric was a jersey blend from Girl Charlee. It is very thin and drapey. It felt like sewing with a tissue at times. I just went slowly and extra carefully and it turned out fine. The thing that made the fabric hard to sew is also the thing I like about the finished dress.  It's very soft and comfortable, feels like pajamas!!

Better show the other days I've missed,
Here was yesterday's outfit:
 Another dress I forgot to show you. I made this one over a year ago! It's a Peony dress (my third) made for stretch twill from Fashion Fabrics Club. It's the same print as my new Anna Dress, but different fabric types. Obviously I love this fabric since I ordered it twice. ;P

And one more outfit to catch up on...
This was Day 7.

Another Jalie 2921 tie front top and Burdastyle Sweat Skirt. Made in 2013.  This outfit is as comfortable as they come.

  1. Love the floral you used for your Peony dress, I can see why you ordered it twice!
