I am on a bit of a Roller Skate dress/top
kick binge lately. I’ve got yet another one cut out for Ava on my sewing table RIGHT NOW. I just can’t help myself…it’s easy, fairly quick, adorable, and great for using up ye ol’ fabric stash since it’s easy to make reversible. I’m doing my best to deplete the stash but it keeps growing back! har har…I wish fabric grew on trees….with ric rac for leaves…..and spools of thread for fruit…..
what was I talking about? Yes, sewing. What else?
I used fabric from the amazing new Fort Firefly line from Birch Fabrics. They were nice enough to send me some and I knew right away I wanted to use them together for this pattern…it just took me a few weeks! *cough*slacker*cough* I used Fireflies in Mineral, and Rose Garden in Taupe. This whole line is just adorable, definitely check it out if you haven’t already!
I sewed up a size 4, without the neck piece, no frills. I love love love this cute coral button I found in my stash. It matches the fabric perfectly!
Added a twill tape tie to the floral side. In order to make this pattern reversible, I didn’t trim the lining hem back as the pattern instructs-just left it as is, and then pressed both the lining and outer fabric hems in 1/2″ and then lined them up, pinned, and sewed 1/4″ from the bottom. Hope this helps those of you who asked about that last time!
aaaaand the reverse! Sadie loved this side more, as usual we disagreed on which side we liked best…haha!
Which side is your favorite?
