This month’s challenge, Sew Stretchy, is perfect timing for me since I’m working on quite a few knit projects this month. I just finished some swimsuits/rashguards for my 3yo daughter Ami, I’m working on some bras and underwear and I’m planning on making a swimsuit after that. But first up is my first Lady Skater by Kitschy Coo! I get what all the rave’s were about now- I adore this dress! The fit is fabulous and so flattering! I think I made this in less than 2 hours last Saturday!
I made this dress in a size 4. Really glad I made a muslin of just the bodice first since I initially went with the size 3 and it was a tad too tight. I recommend following the pattern recommendation of doing the muslin first!
This fabric was love at first sight! I found this beautiful Rabat Rayon/Lycra Knit Ikat print on Marcy Tilton’s website and knew I had to have it. This fabric was part of my Mother’s Day gift- My husband told me to go ahead and buy whatever I wanted! 🙂 The print is even prettier in person and it fits in perfectly with my Wardrobe Architect color scheme! The fabric is also so soft and lightweight- but not sheer- perfect for wearing in our Florida heat!
