Lady Skater Dress No. 2

Hello everyone.

As luck would have it I have finally got round to making a second skater dress. I get quite a lot of wear out of my teal scuba one (post here). For this version I used a light weight jersey in these beautiful peacock colours. The leftovers made this Renfrew top here.

I decided to make the short sleeve version since I wanted it to be something I could wear in summer. The scuba is great in Spring and Autumn on its own – even works in winter with thermals underneath but it gets warm in summer.

I was worried that , given my broad shoulders, the cap sleeve would only serve to make me broader. I am undecided as to what the effect is on my shoulders but I like this little dress.

I had to refresh myself with the instructions before sewing it up but even then it was finished in less than 2 hours of sewing.

I am very pleased with this make- between the Renfrew and Skater I used up every little bit of 2m of fabric 🙂

Thank you so much for stopping by and hanging out on my little corner of the interwebs. Until next time, Happy Sewing!

Paece and love,

  1. What a cute and quick little project! I’d love to sew myself a couple of those dresses. When I get home from work the first thing I want to do is get out of my office clothes and put on something light and easy. This looks like a good dress for that.
