Going with the "Wild Things" theme again, I thought this brightly colored feather knit paired well with some beautiful orchid knit, both from Girl Charlee, of course.
The pattern I used is one of my favorites, but I did a bit of a hack job on it. It is a size 6 oliver + s roller skate dress, and here is what I did differently with this dress: Since I was using knit fabric, I didn't use a lining, so it's not too thick and perfect for a hot, Georgia summer.
The sleeves and neckline are trimmed with knit, so I didn't have to add any length for hemming. The back pattern piece was cut in one piece which I reduced by 1 inch to account for loosing the seam allowance. Since knit is stretchy, there was no need for a back closure, easy!
This took me about 2 hours to sew, with interruptions. I would say that's pretty fast!
