Sailor Pin Up Top

Added Jul 8, 2012

by Pepper Toast

Vancouver, Canada






I made this adapted version of Jalie 2921 Scarf Top for a Pin Up Girl themed fundraiser night for my roller derby team.

The sleeves were unhemmed as I ran out of time and I deliberately chose to leave the hem undone so I would have a smooth line when tucked into my shorts. This is a very comfortable and cute version of this top and I think I’ll make a few more in different colours.

There were a few modifications that I made to the pattern to achieve this look. More info available on my blog: SewSewStudio

    It’s so pretty! Love the bow tie, and the combination with the red skirt/trousers is really great!

      Thank you, so do I. I struggled with how to adapt the sailor look for broad shoulders because those HUGE sailor collars don’t do a lot for that. I’m pretty happy with how this turned out.
