The Skipper Top and Dress has a relaxed, breezy silhouette with a loose and boxy fit, but is not oversized. It features a scoop neck and slight dropped shoulders, giving a mini cap sleeve appearance. The back has a high yoke with a soft, gathered panel. View A is a slightly cropped top designed to hit between the belly button and high hip, View B is a mini dress with patch pockets and View C is a midi dress with inseam pockets and side slits. Both dress views create a flattering, column-like silhouette.

Great style

I loved this dress, even more once I made some modifications. It Is a well thought out pattern that just didn't jive with my measurement suggestions and the overall fit on my frame (5'2", DD and 145 lbs). Because I saw how I could love it, I trimmed several inches off the sides to make the maxi drape well with my chosen fabric (double gauze). Looking at the finished garment measurements, I will now be making my 2nd one this weekend in Essex linen, 2 sizes down. Really looking forward to adding another breezy dress to my summer wardrobe.

Love this dress!

I love everything about this pattern. It has clear instructions, was easy and FUN to sew. I graded from a M at the top to XL at the hips and it was a smooth transition. I love the fit and the look. I played with stripe directions, which was fun. It’s a dress that looks even better on the body than on the hanger. I can’t wait to make the next one.

Versatile

This adorable pattern can be made over and over as a scrap buster, a base for embroidery or pin tucks or other embellishments. I like that it has more coverage than a sleeveless top. It was easy and fun to put together with accurate markings and a great fit. I used a light weight linen for a breezy summer top.

Easy breezy summer dress

This was a fun make, and I love the simplicity of the pattern. It's a great choice for mixing-and-matching fabrics, or for a single fabric that is a solid color or small-scale print. If (like me) you make it up in a large-scale plaid (I used Merchant & Mills gorgeous Island Life linen), be aware that pattern matching is a little tricky (the only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5). That's because the side panels run the entire length of the dress, while the front and back are in two pieces (each has a yoke and a gathered center panel), so the matching won't entirely line up. (I should have thought it through better.)

My advice--to anyone else determined to use a plaid!--is to figure out the placement of your front yoke and front center gathered panel first, then pattern-match the other pieces from the bottom hem up. That way, your plaids will match from the hem to the yoke seam, which is most of the dress (they'll be a little off above that, but hardly noticeable). Anyway, I'm very happy with the result!

Also, I'm 5'3" and didn't shorten the pattern because I wanted a longer length, but I wish I'd moved the pockets up an inch.
