a hole in the head. Or, so, that's what I thought.....
The new Oliver + S patterns came out. I'm going to buy some for my shop - in fact, they're on order. But, could I wait? No. So, I got the digital download of the new Roller Skate Dress pattern.
When I first ordered Moda fabric, the new line from Zen Chic - Comma - just hit the right chord for me. It's got bold patterns and colors - right up my alley! For this project, I chose this:
The pattern is a fully lined, very simple dress - with beautiful lines, an elastic waist, and a yoke overlay option. I used some shot cotton leftover from another project to make this version:
The dress was simple to make, but the neckline could be a little fiddly. Maybe that's why they rated this as a "two-scissor" pattern. The construction - as you can always expect from O+S - was ingenious.
