Nautical Stripes

Added Jun 21, 2011

Tokyo, Japan






Some people find Japanese Summer weather hard to bear with, since it’s humid and muggy. When I feel the humidity in the air and I can no longer put my hair down, it for some reason gets my mind thinking “Nautical.” Around this time of year I start wanting to make items with ships and sea animals and what not. Last year, I made several “sailor” themed items. I really like working around a certain theme, and I decided to do the same this year.

I took out the gray and white pin stripes fabric, and made this sun dress. I love adding piping in contrasting color, I think it instantly adds edge to a simple garment:)

More blogged here.

Also this is available at my etsy shop!

    This dress is SO cute! And I can’t believe how lovely you look!!! I had my baby 5 months ago and I don’t look nearly as good as you do. ;)
