Skater Dress Pattern Tour: La Inglesita

Today's installment of the Skater Dress Pattern Tour is a fellow European blogger, La Inglesita!  Maria lives in Spain with her three children and has most recently been seen strutting her sewing stuff in the latest series of Project Run and Play.

Maria has a great style for clean lines with interesting details: the piping in the tunic's yoke, the buttons and princess seams in the green New Girl dress, letting the fabric do the talking in the Gnome Dress, the reversible (a woman after my own heart!) nature of the gilet, and the underskirt and pocket of that adorable skirt.

Fancy some interesting details of your own? Her tutorials page includes drafting a double collar, a summer sun hat, and a very cute heart shaped lapel.

Here's a sneaky peek of what Maria did with the skater dress... Colour-blocking! Waistband!

Hop through for the full reveal!


  1. Hooray! This dress is amazing, too! :D

  2. María, aquí SÍ puedo comentar y comento: I love it!! Ya lo sabes pero lo repito desde aquí a los cuatro vientos y en ingré pa que me entiendan tós. Me encanta tu toque "europeo" y ya me llevas ventaja en lo de la doble aguja, aún no me he lanzado pero creo que por pura vagancia de tener que poner dos canillas... canallas. Besos mil!

  3. oh my goodness, I adore her version! The colors together are fabulous!
