Lady Skater Pattern Tour: Siestas and Sewing

Today I'm delighted to have Cindy from Siestas and Sewing on the Lady Skater Pattern Tour!  The eagle-eyed amongst you might spot below that Cindy has already made numerous Skaters both for herself and her oldest daughter as I was lucky enough to have her as a tester.  She is one of the most prolific and knowledgeable sewers I know, making endless clothes for her four children on top of her full-time job of making me seethe with hair envy.  I would also like to state for the record that Cindy is particularly susceptible to my own brand of pestering... I bombarded her on several fronts for a tutorial for the Woven Tee and she only went and posted one!  Guess who hasn't made one yet?  This is obviously proof of her kindness (more than my annoyingness) as she was also super-generous in contributing a free Sandbridge shorts and top pattern for my Make in the Metre Series.  She's just an all-around lovely lady that I'm lucky to call a friend.

Without further ado, a sneaky peak... It's sleeveless!  Click on through for the full post :)
