The Skipper

Reminiscent of carefree summer days and never growing up, the Skipper is born to play. Featuring relaxed styling for easy dressing in rough seas, this dress has dropped shoulders and casual rolled cuffs, while the neckline has an internal popper at the front V insert. Sized for ages 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8 years, pick 1 1/2 to 2 yards of medium to lightweight woven fabrics, such as denim, cotton chambray, laundered linen or lightweight wool. You will also need a plastic dress popper, approximately 3/4 yard of 1/2-inch bias binding, matching thread, and lightweight fusible interfacing. Merchant & Mills considers this pattern suitable for an intermediate sewer.
