I recently had the pleasure of testing the new Skyler top and dress by Simple Life Pattern Company.
This pattern is labeled as suitable for beginners and is drafted for knit fabrics. It is available from sizes Newborn all the way up to girls size 12.
I sewed up the size 9-12 Months for Boo and chose the dress length option. There are many options included in this pattern making it suitable for all seasons. Shown in the photos here is the side bows option, but there is also a large center bow option which is equally cute and offers a completely different look. I chose to sew up the open square back option but there is also a square cutout option, as well as a modesty option that features a higher back for a little more coverage. Sleeve options are not lacking in this pattern either as there are five (yes you read that correctly) FIVE different sleeve options. You can choose from sleeveless, sleeve tabs, short sleeves, elbow length (demonstrated in my photo to the left), and long sleeves. Becca wasn’t messing around when she designed this! Lastly, there are just as many options for the skirt. You can choose from a circle skirt or gathered skirt in peplum, tunic, or dress length.
So what’s the final say?
Did it look like the line drawings and/or photos in the pattern? Yes
Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes
What is your favorite feature in this pattern? As I stated above, there are so many options included in this pattern. This is definitely a plus in my book as it makes this the perfect knit staple year round.
Is there anything that you disliked about this pattern? No. This pattern sewed up very easily, the instructions were easy to follow, and overall I now have a pattern that I see myself using over and over again.
Fabric Used: I used knits that I had purchased from Spun Honey Fabrics. The black and white stripes are by Riley Blake Fabrics and the Lemons used for the skirt are by Art Gallery Fabrics.
Final Conclusions: All in all, I would highly recommend this pattern to anyone looking for a knit staple to add to their child’s wardrobe.
That’s it for today’s post friends, thank you for stopping by!
So adorable! Thanks for the information, I just bought the pattern and can’t wait to make it!
