New Sewing Patterns Preview - 4 of 7

Now, a sewing pattern for skaters of all ages and levels that need fun pieces for practice: 3025 - Figure Skating Dresses. Even though this pattern is labeled as a skating pattern, I'm sure many people will make good off-the-ice use of this pattern.
The pattern includes two short freestyle skirts and two longer dance dress that would be great for ballroom dancing:
  • View A: A-Line skirt with optional patch pocket
  • View B: Fishtail skirt
  • View C: Asymmetrical skirt
  • View D: Circular skirt
All styles have a yoke with 3/4'' elastic and attached briefs. View D is shorter on the sides so that the leg looks longer.



For those who are wondering about the leotard on the pictures, it is sewing pattern 2674. We simply omitted the skirt and pinched the front using the technique shown in our unitard and tutu pattern.

I can't skate, but plan on making the asymmetrical skirt or fishtail skirt in a nice slinky when I am back to pre-pregnancy size. I will most probably turn it into a simple pull-on skirt without the briefs.

Stay tuned for more patterns... :)

In slinky, it would make an utterly fabulous transition piece! Who wants to wait??

I'm loving the new patterns! Keep up the amazing work!
