Introducing the new Skipper Top pattern from Sew Much Ado!
I was excited to be chosen to help test this pattern, because I knew it was just the push I needed to really get comfortable with knit fabrics.
Look how awesome my banded version is! It looks like somebody else made it.
I had a series of crappy looking projects when I first started sewing. I made a gorgeous dress one day, and my daughter said,”Wow Mommy! It looks like somebody else made it!” Now, that phrase is lovingly reserved for only my very best, professional looking garments.
I just want to sew little pockets on all her plain tops now! Oh, feel free to notice the neckband in all it’s glory. Neckbands in previous projects have been the bane of my existence..but this one goes in so easy.
Below is my second Skipper Top. It only takes about an hour to make…who knew knits could be so cooperative?!
For this one I used some leftover vintage fabric from Bella’s Tea Time Dress. I was able to squeeze out a little headband too. Matching hair accessories are pretty much life and death in the third grade.
I’m loving this pattern, and I’ve already sewn a dress version that I’ll share soon. I’m also looking forward to sewing Skipper’s big sister pattern; the Seafarer Top.
I asked Bella if she’d wear Mommy daughter matching t-shirts. She said,”Sure! But as long as we’re nowhere near where any off my friends will see me.”
Maybe I’m crazy, but I will totally drive to another city to have a day of matchiness with her. Because I’m going to blink and she’ll have a drivers license! Noooo!!!
If you have a little girl, I urge you to head over and get the Skipper & the Seafarer patterns and sew up some matching sets- while you can still be seen in public together!
