Friday Frock: Papercut’s Skipper Tunic

It’s that time of year when we start dreaming of booking a getaway. Just imagine sailing away on a luxury yacht, a glass of fizz in hand and not a care in the world…

Even if a sailing holiday isn’t on the cards, though, you can still stitch yourself a yacht-worthy wardrobe with Papercut’s Skipper Tunic pattern from its gorgeous new spring/summer collection, aptly titled Ahoy!.

Billed as Papercut’s ‘most versatile pattern yet’, the relaxed-fit Skipper can be made as a tunic or top, with a lace-up front, v-neck or square neckline. We love the lace-up tunic style – perfect for pretending you’re in Duran Duran’s Rio video…

The Skipper Tunic is available as a printed pattern or print-at-home PDF in sizes XXS-XL from the Papercut website and Backstitch.Skipper Tunic
