Welcome to day three of the Skipper Top Pattern Tour! We have two more stops today that I’m thrilled to introduce!
Miriam, AKA Mim of Mad Mim, has mad skills. Not only is she a master of her sewing machine (everytime I see a mu mu in a thrift store I think of her and all the possibilities), she is the fabric hand printing guru around the blogisphere. She recently taught a class at Sewing Summit on how to hand print on fabric, and all weekend I followed along on Instagram wishing I was there! It was raved about by everyone who attended. And fun fact, when Mim and I met in real life, we discovered that we have not one but two people in common in our lives! During college, she was roommates with my SIL and also friends with one of my good high school friends. Such a small world we live in, isn’t it?! I knew that Mim would take the Skipper Top and put her own unique spin on it, and she surely did in such a great way! I love how she customized the pattern, and you must go HERE and read all about it!
I’m also so so pleased to also have Sherri from Thread Riding Hood on the tour today! If you’re not already familiar with Sherri and her blog, you should be! Sherri is a fellow Canadian (who, unlike me, actually lives in Canada :)), and I’ve enjoyed getting to know her through our blogs. One of Sherri’s many talents is making a basic pattern into something more. She often blogs about how to make simple changes to a pattern, such as adding a bow to a sleeve cuff, and I especially love the Measure Me Chart that she shared for keeping track of your child’s measurements! So handy! After seeing Sherri’s dress version of the Skipper Top, I’ve been dying to make one like it for Lola. You can read all the details about the top and dress that she made for her cute girls HERE!
