Seriously, I am always late to the party.
The Roller Skate dress party.
I don't have a lot of sewing time anymore so I like my sews to be interesting.
I had dismissed this dress as a 'quick sew' and possibly a bit ho-hum.
Liddy needed a yellow tunic for Presentation Night. I thought it might be a good time to crack out my Roller Skate pattern.
I was surprised at how much I enjoyed sewing it.
Buttery soft butter yellow linen lined with cotton poplin.
I really like the wee Puppet Show-ish sleeve caps.
I used embroidery silk to work a simple running stitch and found a lovely painted MoP bird button for the roulette loop.
Such a nice finish.
So flattering on her willowy frame.
Yellow is her colour.
Isn't she gorgeous?
She did a great job dancing.
