Flickr inspiration: April’s pick
: : I’m a huge fan of Oliver + S patterns, and the moment I saw the Roller Skate dress from the new spring collection I was immediately sold. It’s a simple, easy-to-wear style with lots of possibilities to make it your own—a great basic dress pattern. My version features the optional yoke, but I rounded it rather than cutting the V-shape shown in the pattern. I picked up the Charleston Farmhouse Bloomsbury fabric while browsing the Bolt sale earlier in April—the colors are so lovely and spring-y and I couldn’t resist it. I didn’t have anything specific in mind to make (I do way too much fabric shopping this way!) besides maybe a skirt for my daughter, so I got 3/4 of a yard—but I was able to cut an entire Roller Skate dress (size 3) from that! I’m already planning another rendition of this dress—like so many
Oliver + S patterns, it’s one I plan to make over and over again.
