Merchant and Mills Childrenswear - The Skipper Dress
Little girl pattern for ages 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8 years. Inspired by the classic sailor bib, Merchant and Mills pay homage to the ancient port of Rye (their hometown). Irresistibly redolant of carefree summer days and never growing up, the skipper is born to play. Featuring relaxed styling for easy dressing in rough seas, the Skipper has dropped shoulders and casual rolled cuffs whilst the neckline has an internal popper at the front V insert. This pattern is suitable for an intermediate sewer.
This is a multi-size paper pattern in an envelope, including sizes 3 - 8 years.
Merchant and Mills' sample has been made using their Goodnight laundered linen. We recommend medium to lightweight woven fabrics such as denim, cotton chambray, laundered linen or lightweight wool. You will also need a plastic dress popper, approximately 0.75m of shop bought 13mm bias binding, matching thread and lightweight fusible interfacing.
