I was inspired by Maryy and her gorgeous creations and particularly loved her navy sailor dress, so this is my version. I used Maryy’s tutorial on how to make the top of her sailor dress and then made my own shape for the bottom. I’m quite happy with the result =)

Material Notes

Navy cotton for outer and white cotton for lining and top




Garment Type
Casual, Classic, Evening Wear, Romantic

      Oh it’s super easy! if you look up the page a bit and on the right you’ll se a box that says “this project is based on”. In that box, beside where it says “Maryy … Free” it has a button saying “get it”. click on that button and the pattern should download for you into your purchased items. When it turns up there just click “get pattern” and print the PDF that comes up.
      Hope that helps!!

    I have tried to make the maryy dress, I wanted it strapless but I can’t get it to fit without the straps! Did you add anything to the top?

      No, but I didn’t use the top in the instructions, instead I used Maryy’s tutorial “Bust of the heat dress”, so basically all I did was cut a rectangle of fabric (approx 8’’ by 32’’), lined it and then pinned it on myself so it fitted and the unsewn ends were on the side under my right arm (because I wanted a side zip). I then gathered the bust and pinned my zip onto the side, trying the top on so that I knew it would fit before I sewed it. I think it worked because I made sure the piece of fabric was quite wide (8"). That meant that it went down to my waist at the back, but fitted and was super comfy! =D

      Ah, thanks for the advice! I’ll take a look at her tutorial later. I’ve ended up adding straps onto it now – getting it to fit was just annoying! :D.
      I’ll probably make another one though and make that strapless! :)
