The Skipper by Merchant & Mills

Little girl pattern for ages 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8 years. Inspired by the classic sailor bib, we pay homage to the ancient port of Rye, the hometown of Merchant & Mills.

Irresistibly redolant of carefree summer days and never growing up, the skipper is born to play. Featuring relaxed styling for easy dressing in rough seas, the Skipper has dropped shoulders and casual rolled cuffs whilst the neckline has an internal popper at the front V insert.
