Figuring Skating Dress Plans

So....the figure skating dress I'm making for a friend of mine has begun! Whoopdy do! She's going to be skating in a competion come December, and I'm making the dress :) And I'm really excited about it too, I've never made anything like this before haha. 

I'm got my pattern worked out, and am fiddling with altering a few things to make the neckline and skirt different right now. I got a simple leotard pattern for the main bit of it, and I'm doing what I typically do for the rest :P  I downloaded the pattern and when you print it off it's like a mammoth puzzle that you put together with some tape. That's all I've got photos of right now.

I'll keep you updated as I progress! Going hiking at Crowders Mountain today again, with the friends we were going to hike with last time. Hopefully I'll get some good pictures!!

  1. Oh yeah, Olivia's going to look gorgeous, I'm sure! :D Can't wait to see more pics! :O (do you have any sketches already made out of the basic dress? :D)

    1. Of course she will :-) I do have a few scetches, a rough sketch and a better one that I'm working on. I've got the mockup made too :-)
