Summer Skater

Skater dresses has been a must have item for every girl this past year. I've seen so many variations that often too many times they began to look a like. I adore the look, but I wanted something different then what was out there. Of course, you know I had to make my own. 

I decided to use the left over fabric I had from my maxi dress I made, which I posted about early on this season; Summer Leaves (Take a look)

I created a simple skirt bottom using my sisters skater dress she bought from H&M. Then I decided to drape the bodice, because like I said before I wanted something different. I asked my mannequin, "Mannequin what should I do" and it told me. I gave the front a cross bodice. Picture making an X with the fabric on your chest. Having more fabric on the bottom than the top. I sewed the bottom on to the skirt waist and sewed the shoulders. This ended up creating a great look and cute cut out on the sides. 

I truly love this dress. It is fun, flirty and trendy!!!
