Wanderlusting Sailor Dress
Added Feb 18, 2013
DescriptionLately I’ve really been inspired by anything that has to do with sailing. This may have something to do with watching Master and Commander and constantly looking at Arthur Rackham beach illustrations. I’ve been thinking of what a woman sailor would look like and how one could transfer that same nautical/sailor theme mixed with a soft feminine look. I’ve been playing with this idea a lot and I’m hoping to do a lot more with this idea.
I made the dress using Vogue’s Rebecca Taylor 1152 pattern with my own minor design adjustments. I’ve used this pattern multiple times and I love how easy of a dress it is and yet it still looks intricate. The only changes I made was making ti sleeveless, and a more exaggerated asymmetrical skirt. I made the shoulder epaulets by cutting out felt and then hot gluing gold trim and tassels onto it.
Woven fabric, elastic, interfacing, invisible zipper, hot glue gun, felt, tassels and other designed trims.
