DD wants to start wearing skating dresses to her figure skating class. DO YOU KNOW HOW MUCH THOSE THINGS COST!!!??? So off I went to Spandex House in New York, which is skating dress supply central, and stocked up on a few fabrics that sparkle and stretch. I’m planning on making several of these, but I want her to wear this to one of her classes and tell me if it’s OK.
The pattern I used was KwikSew 3508, which was just what I needed. I appliqued the sparkly fabric to the front and back pieces of plainer fabric. I started it yesterday, and from tracing the pattern to having it on her body, I could have finished it in one day. Then I decided to watch a movie after dinner rather than sew, so I finished it today. But really, it was very easy.
DD has been wearing it around the house all day. I’m glad she likes it.
