sewing with knits | the skipper top. . .


More knit fabric! More cute tops for the kiddo! I was recently a pattern tester for Sew Much Ado's new Skipper Top pattern and ended up with this cute floral top. Definitely a great staple pattern you want to add to your stash if you sew with knits or want to learn how. It's a pretty quick sew and the pattern has several different options for finishing off the neckline, sleeves, and waist band. The pattern ranges in size from 6 months to 10 years and I found it to be true to size. Syd wears a 4t in most commercial tops and the size 4 I made fit great.

I made the version with bands on all three plus a cute heart shaped pocket. Check it out here. I used this floral fabric from Girl Charlee. It is super soft, washes up well, and is a heavier weight knit which I really like. They can be hard to find for some reason.

  7. Cute! I have made a few things with that fabric and really like it as well. And I love tee shirts with bands instead of hemming - it makes things so fast!
