This cute sailor pattern, by Genniewren Designs, comprises bell bottom pants with a button front fastening and real pockets, together with a short sleeved sailor shirt with traditional style sailor collar, and a sailor cap. The pants styling is reminiscent of the 1930s vintage films and adds a touch of vintage glamour to the outfit.
The easy to wear pants look perfect with the sailor shirt or with teeshirts and other tops. Imagine the pants in a floral summer print, with maybe rick rack trim along the pocket edge, and a crop top for the perfect beach outfit, or for lounging on deck of a cruise ship.
The sailor blouse could be changed up by using different fabric for the collar or by using different types of trim. It would also work well with plain pants, shorts or a pleated skirt and worn loose rather than tucked into the waistband of the pants, shorts or skirt.
This PDF sewing pattern is designed to fit 18 inch dolls such as American Girl®, Gotz Precious Day Doll® or Madame Alexander Favorite Friends®. The top and sailor cap will also fit 15" soft bodied baby dolls.
