Seahawks dress!

I decided to made a dress to wear to the Superbowl.  I found some lovely navy and lime knit fabrics in perfect Seahawks colors.



I modified the Lady Skater pattern to mimic this very lovely sketch.  (I've never claimed to be an artist.)


I just copied the curved line at the bottom of the cap sleeve piece to it apart for the stripes and then added a seam allowance to where it would be joined up.  The skirt I attempted to make the green parts be inverted box pleats but my math didn't quite work out because I didn't allow for the blue fabric to have to be folded over on top of the green at the waistline.  duh!  But I like the way it turned out anyway.


Aside from the "12" which will be an appliqué or something that I may be brave enough to add later, I feel like I did a good job of realizing what I sketched.


And here she is on my dress form.


I ended up wearing my #3 Wilson jersey over it at the game, so you can't see the full dress.  But it was a big hit.  And even though the game didn't have the outcome we had hoped for, it was a blast being there at the Superbowl in real life with my most awesome daughter.



This trophy should have been ours!!  :)
