At the height of 21st century fashion is the skater dress. With an iconic silhouette that is created by a full-circle mini-skirt and a high strappy neckline, it's never been easier to team a girly visage with an edgy vibe. One of our more popular patterns, the Skater dress pattern, is designed to create the perfect balance between the two styles - with an emphasis on the top half of the body that oozes vogue and a circle skirt that showcases long leg-length with sassy spin-ability.
- A full circle skirt that is gathered into the waist section with raw jersey hem
- A double layer bodice, with thick shoulder straps
- A single centre back seam on both pieces (skirt and bodice)
MATERIAL/ SUPPLIES(Based on largest size)
- Fabric: 210cm/ 83”
- 3 or 4 thread overlocker machine (domestic or industrial)
Our popular Skater dress is an easy pattern that will be a great starting piece for beginner sewists. Constructing this garment with a fine jersey material (one-way stretch will be ideal) using just two pattern pieces, a single un-hemmed layer for the skirt and only 2-3 major seams, it really can be put together in a snap! This is the simplest jersey pattern in our entire collection, but bear in mind that this garment must be constructed using an overlocker machine. This is in order to maintain the unique stretch quality of the skirt, and each pattern piece comes complete with 0.5cm or 1/4” seam allowance to account for this element.
