Happy Friday!  Our feature today is a clever and comfy take on our Roller Skate Dress + Tunic pattern, perfect for casual springtime play!

Jo of the Belgian blog Jo Sews made this adorable dress for her daughter in knit fabric rather than woven, with just a few simple modifications to the pattern to eliminate the lining.  She talks about how she did it in her blog post here.  The dress looks so great in that striped fabric, nice work Jo!

Have any of you made a knit roller skate dress?  I haven’t but I want to try it!

    Such an attractive frock, and such a sweet model! Thank you very much for the tutorial. I’ve made this pattern so many times (due to popular demand) in the last 6 months, I can do it in my sleep. I’m not confident with knits but Jo’s effort reminds me that a stable knit would produce a warmer, and very wearable dress for Australia’s colder months. Thank you!

  2. This looks so elegant but easy to wear, in a knit.
    Well done.

  3. What a great idea! Off to see how she did the modifications now!
