Flickr inspiration: April’s pick

—By Heather

Happy May 1st! Congratulations to Gail Schneider, who’s photo has been chosen as our monthly Flickr Pool favorite for April. Here’s what Gail had to say about her project:

: :  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.

     Thank you so much for featuring my project! I adore Bolt and we are so lucky to have such a wonderful shop in our community—it’s truly a gem!   : :
