At last, a vintage-styled sailor dress designed for easy sewing. The Seaside Sailor Dress has the details you want like a sailor collar, jaunty ties and fully lined bodice and no extra fuss. Button (or snap) front closure.

Full sailor collar leaves room for your trim, appliques or monograms. Scarf design gives the look of a knotted tie without the knot, and without going all the way around the neck. Fully lined, classic length bodice closes with 3 buttons or press-in or sew-in snaps. Knee length.

SEVEN sizes included: 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7/8, 9/10 (chest measurement to about 28")
Recommended sewing experience: Advanced Beginner - requires buttonholes or press-in or sew-in snaps.
