Another Skater Hack

This time I took the lady skater dress pattern and an article from Threads.
I created the cowl neck lady skater. 

The fabric is an ITY that I bought from Fabric Mart
on sale just before my birthday.
It got sewn up quite quickly.
 The boots look a bit dark with this print, which is orange, olive, ivory and dark brown.  I bought 3 yards at just over $3 a yard so it's the $10 dress. 

I think the next hack might be to add darts to the bodice or maybe gathers a la the ottobre tee.

I have 3 more pieces of ITY from this order - maybe there are more lady skaters in my future.  It's an easy, simple dress and is easily adaptable for hacks. 


  1. That is very pretty. The cowl and the full skirt with the bright colors make it a very feminine, flattering dress. Very nice!

  2. An attractive dress - it looks comfortable, too.

  3. You are on a roll, that looks great on you.

  4. Love your new dress. SO pretty.Great buy on that fabric too.

  5. Your hacks are great! I like that print on you. I'm going to try that dress in January, after the Christmas lunacy has passed.

  6. Oooh! That dress looks so comfortable! And I love your boots!

  7. Love the last photo of you. You look so pretty and happy.

    And the boots look great with the dress. My tall, dark brown boots bit the dust yesterday. The faux leather is flaking off. I'm asking Santa for new tall boots!


I appreciate you coming to see me. It may take me a bit to publish your comment - but I will get to them by the end of every day. If you leave a way for me to get back to you, I will. Thanks for taking the time to comment and share your opinions. g
