This green sailor dress was my first dressmaking attempt since high school. I used New Look 6587 for the basic pattern, but changed the buttons to a zipper. I drafted my own sailor collar using this online tutorial . I made the decorative stripes myself so that the fabrics would all match, but in the future I would just fake it and use bias tape or ribbon.
