Alteration Description (please describe exactly what you want done)

The sailor dress first became popular in the late 1800's when girls no longer wore formal Victorian crinolines and stays on a daily basis. It appears to have been most popular during the turn of the century Edwardian Era when both boys and girls wore sailor outfits.  At least for school and play, the high yoke and moderate lengths allowed girls to run and  move freely.  Our Sailor Dress tries to keep the spirit of the original.  The high yoke is fully lined to avoid any scratchiness and is finished with a zipper in the back.  The large square yoke extends to the back of the dress and along with the cuffs is done in a contrast color.  The skirt is moderately full, but not as full as our other high yoke dresses and in sailor dress style, ends below the knee--upper calf on most girls.  You can expect the length to be 4-5 inches shorter than the finished lengths on the size chart.  You are welcome to try any fabric combination.  For a truly classic sailor dress with a more formal look, use one of the blues with a white collar and cuffs. Just let us know if you need help matching fabrics.  Available in short sleeves from size 2-14.

If you like the picture of the dress as shown, I have the same dress cut out and ready to sew in sizes 3, 4 and 5.  To order the dress in those sizes, simply put "as shown" down as your fabric choice.  You need not pay any fabric surcharges.  These three dresses are cut to standard length and therefore cannot be lengthened.

Approximate finished length is 4-5 inches shorter than the lengths below.  You may of course add length if you'd like. If you have a child who does not fit into a size fairly close to her age, please use the contact form at the top of the page to drop us a note so that we can help you with sizing.
