You do know I like designing doll dresses on occasion, do you not?
Well, at the current time, I am going through a 1940's phase in my doll dress making and I just had to make a sailor suit! (I guess I get the sea naturally, my great-grandpa was in the Navy in WWI and grandpa was a commercial fisherman for years.)
A little music to spice up this post!
The collar is detachable...and the bodice is actually backwards because I decided at the last minute that I really did want a front closer after all...
I made this after the style of what a little girl would have worn during the '40's, thus the quite short skirt...and the little panties. (I actually took a pantaloon pattern and in essence chopped the legs off it. :D)
I must say, I'm decently pleased out how it came out...but I know better how to do the next one.
I have to scram and feed my chickens! (By the way, some of the roosters were having a crowing competition this morning...)
