Cream Floral Lady Skater

Finally! This one has been on my do-to list for MONTHS. Fabric is Plum Gray Rose Floral on Taupe Cotton Jersey Knit Fabric from Girl Charlee.


It’s a bit thin, so I think if I were to use it again I’d just use it for a top. Changes I made from my usual Lady Skater are:

  • 3/4-length sleeves w/ ruffle
  • slight V-neck
  • ruffle + eyelet lace added to bottom

The brown ruffle peeking out below the white eyelet is my brown petticoat skirt. Since the fabric is thin, I’m expecting to wear this layered.


The sleeve ruffles are circular ruffles and hemmed with a narrow hem on my serger. The V-neck is made by just sewing a wedge in the center front of the neckband.
