Knit using Kelbourne Woolens stunning 100% cotton yarn, Skipper, Ketch is a classic Kate design: it has clean lines, graphic patterning, and simple shapes with small details such as short row shaping, sloped bind offs, and seams finished with mattress stitch.
In case you missed it with the first pattern in the collection, Catalina, you'll notice we did something a little different with the Skipper Collection shoot. Since we only ever design things we'd happily wear, it was a no brainer to finally put ourselves in front of the camera this time around to show you more of our core styles and personalities.
Each design was photographed on the designer (in this case, me in my Ketch), with two different outfits - a "real-life" Style It, if you will. As an added bonus, my outfits are entirely me-made! The silk scarf here is from a bundle dyeing class I took with Melanie from Modest Transitions at Wild Hand, the jeans I am wearing are the Claryville Jeans I made in a class with Lauren Taylor at Workroom Social back in 2019, and the dusty pink silk pants (below) are the Bisque Trousers by Vivian Shao Chen.
While we're not changing our day jobs any time soon, we had a lot of fun with the shoot and hope you enjoy it!
