Lady Skater Vintage

I used this 1960’s/70’s fabric to make up a Lady Skater dress. The fabric was £3 from my local vintage village. A fairly typical synthetic from that era, mildly see through and with only one way stretch. Not exactly the right fabric for the pattern, but I thought it was worth a try.
I’m fairly happy with the resulting dress, it’s comfy and easy to wear so will probably become part of my every day wardrobe.
I did have to cut the skirt quite short because I didn’t quite have enough fabric, but I think I can get away with it, and the length does suit the feintly 60’s feel I think?
As always, more details on my blog.

  • I think it turned out cute! The length and the fabric do give it a 60’s vibe!
