Lady Skater Dress pattern by Kitschy Coo started making the rounds, I was really excited. However, the weight of the knit is really important for this style, and without a decent local source for heavy knits with lycra, I was a bit stuck. However, the moment I spotted this wool sweater knit at the fabric store, I knew it was the right fabric for the job.
The fabric isn't itchy at all, though a slip is required for wearing with tights. I need to make a gorgeous silk slip so I don't hate wearing them [the polyester versions] anymore!
Overall, I love the dress and will definitely seek out more fabrics for this pattern. (And definitely add pockets next time!).
