Well, this month's pattern is the roller skate dress and tunic from Oliver & S which I've just experienced for the first time. Their pattern is marvelous! I've learn a lot on how to sew a proper way just from following the pattern instructions.
I spent lots of time day dream about how to flip it... and some ideas pop up in my mind. The pattern made me think of Ninja suit in Japanese manga which I've seen when I'm just a girl. Crazy idea???
You see the ninja girl? her name is Tsubame. I think her suit may cute for my little girl. No?

And this is the result of my overload-imagination. At least it turned out cute (in my bias opinion) and I think she wear them happily. The top and bottom make her run around perfectly.

I have no idea what Tsubame wear inside her mini ninja suit but I'm sure that my young lady can not running with only mini and expose her underwear at the playground. So, I made her a culottes to go with that lengthen tunic.

Top : I use the roller skate in tunic length with added extra inch at the hem. Build in obi-like, first layer attached the the dress covering the elastic casting lines and second layers as a wrap around belt which stitched to the center back side of the tunic and tied at the front.

Cullottes : From Japanese sewing pattern book シンプル＆デサイン おんなの子服 おとこの子服

The patterns inside this book are so lovely that I bought it hence I cannot read any Japanese. Just saw the images made me have a sweet dream... but trying to understand and tracing the pattern in action was such a pain.
