Period Sailor inspired short set

I was ask to make this for a photo shoot. It really hard to find the color you need in the local. fabric store so I had to dye a cotton to get the color I wanted.

1 note I put 4 buttons on the center waistband. 2 for the top to attach to and 2 so the waistband to attach on the inside flap. that way the waist can be slightly adjusted to fit the waist without affecting the front line

Material Notes

Dye cotton general clear botton




Garment Type
Beach, Casual, Military, Vintage

      I have a measurement chart that I can e-mail you.

      My measurements are all somewhere in between an size8 and a size10 so I was thinking you could just draft it to a 10 and I could draft it a little bit to fit me. =)

      I don’t really like using email for things because it’s my family email.
      So I was wondering if you could put the pattern on Burdastyle,even for a little while, so I could get it?

      I’m sorry if that’s a problem.

      thank you so much,
      God bless you,M

    it’s so flattering on the dress form, could we see it a live model? i love how the collar falls over the halter neckline onto the back, adorable!
