Roller Skate Hi-Low Tunic | Oliver + S Pattern Flip
Basically, you use the pattern selected for each month, but add your own twist. You can see the July entries using the Oliver+S Rollerskate Dress pattern here.
For my flip, I used the tunic length in the front and cut a mullet in the back!
I used this really cool Moda print with musical notes. (It’s actually a gift for Bella’s little cousin, but since they’re the same size, Bella helped with fittings.)
I have two regrets for this tunic.
1) I wish I would’ve made it longer,as a dress; or a bit shorter in back. The hi to low ratio is too far apart for me.
2) I’m hating myself for these photos…a combination of harsh lighting & being too lazy to mess with the settings did me in. I’m getting snobby now,I don’t even want to publish projects anymore if the photos aren’t nice.
I had to alter the construction a bit in order to keep the lining clean. The pattern calls for the dress & lining to be hemmed separately. Since my lining shows, I made it one piece & added a side seam.
It was my first time using an Oliver+S pattern, and I’m hooked. I’m working with another one already:)
Do you have an all time favorite dress pattern for girls? This may be mine!
