 I’ve had this fabulous grey quilted fabric in my stash for awhile-the plans were to make a cardigan out of it originally, but then I couldn’t stop picturing a cute little skater dress, so in the end that won out! and I love it! It’s super cozy and simple! I knew I needed to use the skater dress pattern because I didn’t want to gather the fabric-that would have been a hot mess since it’s fairly thick!

The neckband doesn’t stretch very much but we got it over Ava’s head in the end. I sewed up a size 3/4 bodice and then lengthened the skirt to a 5/6, also lengthened the sleeves and opted for hemming them rather than the bands the pattern has included.

  1. Her special poses were the cutest, love the dress.

  2. Adorable as always! Glad your sewing mojo is coming back. I have had some of that quilted knit in my stash forever too, it probably won’t be cool anymore by the time I get around to sewing wth it 😂

  3. She looks lovely in it!

    Ava is killing it in these poses! Love how the quilted fabric holds its shape in the skirt so well! ❤️

  5. Great dress, I want one for myself!

    Ava is getting big too! Love the poses.

  6. Ah those “pushing the pineapple” poses are too much! She’s adorable.
    I would like this dress to wear in winter with tights and knee high boots please!

  7. Ooooo it works so well in quilted knit. I was actually considering the Spin Dress in a quilted knit and now I know it’s going to look fab. I love it when I just stumble upon what I’ve been planning in my head.
