Sailor Bachelorette Party Dress

Added May 6, 2014

by iheartfabric

Qld, Australia






I recently went to a friends Bachelorette/Hens party where the theme was to dress up sailor themed. I decided to make Butterick 5474 dress with a few modifications to get that Sailor design. The main modifications were extending the collar so that it was square at the back instead of curved. Also, I added full length sleeves.

Please see my blog post for more photos of the night.
