The Skipper Top

If you follow me on Instagram (username gwennypenny2), you may have seen a sneak peek of this project last week. I purchased the Skipper Top pattern from Sew Much Ado and made matching shirts for the girls.


This pattern goes together so quickly. I definitely want to make more of these shirts. There are different options for the sleeves, neckline, and waist. I went with bands on all three. It was so easy to do. And I found the pattern to be true to size. I made the 3T and the 6 for my three and six year olds.


I absolutely love the feel of this knit fabric. I bought it while we were on vacation in Maine last month. It's from Riley Blake's Knit Basics line. It's one of the softest knits I've ever felt. The photos don't do it justice. It's a beautiful lavender and navy blue.


My girls live in knits, and they tend not to wear things that I sew for them unless they're made from knits. They love these shirts!


The pattern goes all the way up to a size 10, so I'll be able to use it for many years to come. I highly recommend the Skipper Top!

They turned out darling. And yay for sneaking in some fabric shopping while on vacation. ;) We might have to do some of that when you come.
