Pattern Details

A skaterdress is a classic. It's versatile, comfortable, and very easy to accessorize. The pattern is easy, fit for nearly any occasion, and simple to alter. It can be made with a long hem, long or short sleeves, high or revealing neckline, You name it. I gave the classic a Gothic makeover. This pattern includes two variations to the basic pattern: a plain version, and a Gothic one. The plain version comes with elbow-length sleeves which can be lengthened to Your taste, a fitted bodice, and a circle hem. The Gothic option sports a lacing in the front of the bodice, a large, lace trimmed hood, and bell sleeves. The tutorial also includes a recipe on how to make a version of the classic using a fitted store-bought blouse. Feel free to mix and match elements to create fun designs! The pattern includes sizes 32-28. The dress is designed for elastic fabrics. The tutorial is written in Finnish and English, and the dl-size is 6,1Mt.

I am a Finnish indie author and designer, self-taught seamstress with a degree and a passion to create. I run a small business in fashion, offering unique, one-of-a-kind sewing, knitting and crochet patterns. As the Gothic style is close to my heart, most of my designs feature elements of dark fashion. As the environment is very dear to me, I try to include tips on how to take full advantage of recycled and upcycled materials in my patterns. Shop policy: we offer no refunds on electronic products.
