Lady Skater goes to the rodeo

Well, the Houston Rodeo was 2 mos ago so I'm very late in posting these. This was my first Lady Skater dress pattern by Kitschy Coo, love the pattern. The fabric I got from Joann's, it's a very soft knit and I love the flowers. I cut a size 5 (I think) and it fit just fine. In fact, I have since used the bodice as the pattern for knit tops- will post pics later as I've made at least 4.
I made the 3/4 sleeves for the dress  since in Houston you never know if it's going to be cold and rainy or hot in February/March. This year we had a lot of moisture and rain, thank goodness for hats since it would be frizz-ville for me and my hair.
