I'm trying to make most of Stella's Fall and Winter wardrobe. I picked up a few Oliver and s patterns I'd been lusting after in a 40% off sale this summer and I've been itching to use them. I figured with a long sleeve and leggings a roller skate dress would fit right in. But today was beautiful and sunny, so all it needed was boots!

|So much enthusiasm. Hard to contain.|
|Good for playing!|
Pattern: Oliver + s Roller Skate Dress
Sizing: I sewed a 3T in 4T length (according to the measurements) and it fits great!
Material used: A couple of batiks from Joann's. I don't know why this is the first time I've used a batik for a garment, love the results!
Notions needed: A button and a scrap of interfacing (which I forgot to use and it was fine.) I also used a hair tie instead of a strip of bias for the button loop.
Appropriately rated: Yep. (Rated two/four scissors.) Although with Liesl's instructions, I bet it could be a first project.
Time spent: Not long. I'm slow and it was just a few hours including cutting.
Comments: Super cute dress. And it can be reversible! (There are plans in the works for a small tunic.) As with every Oliver + s pattern I've sewn, it set the bar impossibly high for all other pattern designers and I had no problems with the instructions.
