Set sail back to the 1950s in this vintage style sailor crop top and capri pants designed by Keepers Dolly Duds. The fully lined sleeveless crop top is fitted at the bust and closes in front with three small snaps accentuated with decorative buttons. The sailor collar can be finished with a narrow trim or decorative stitching and a simple ribbon bow adds a pop of color and charm. The elastic back on the waistline of the capris make them easy to pull on while the fitted front give them a sleek appearance that mirrors the fit of the crop top. A decorative waist band and lacing along the legs add a layer of interest to the otherwise modest design. As an added bonus, the ensemble is topped off with a traditional sailor cap that can be worn with the brim up or down.

Made this for the first time today, and it’s absolutely adorable! It has lots of interesting details, and yet they’re all explained so well that the pattern was more fun than challenging. I was really pleased with how well the pants, especially, fit ... the darts and flat waistband in the front, with elastic in the back, combined for a perfect fit. Definitely one I’ll make again!
