Sailor Dress 3yrs

from Student Designer
(9) Name: 'Sewing : Sailor Dress 3yrs
Sailor Dress 3yrs Sailor Dress Front

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Sew seams and hems
  • Peter Pan Collars
  • Facings
  • Sleeves

Pattern Description:

I was talking with a customer in my Mum's shop one day, and she said that she wanted a sailor collar dress pattern for her grand-daughter. We only had baby-sized ones, so I made one for a three-year-old instead! It's a classic style that's cute without being frilly.

I made this pattern a few years ago before learned sewing industrial methods so this has 1.5cm seam allowances and uses home-sewing methods for construction.

The instructions are in a series of tutorials on "my blog":http://sabrinawhartonbrown.wordpress.com/sailor-dress-tutorials/ .

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • 3 year old (22" chest)


  • 1m fabric
  • Interfacing
  • 1-2 spools thread
  • 8" (20cm) invisible zip
