I just made these gorgeous sailor suits for my kids. I love them, and I think the classic style is timeless. But funky and modern they are not!
Anyway, I'd like to share the creative path that lead to these two outfits.
The dress is actually Miss Missy's third sailor dress. I bought the first one second hand, and she wore it when she was around 9 to 18 months. I remember her wearing it before she could walk, and that was when she developed her bum shuffle to get about :-)

And from then on, Miss Missy started begging me to make her a new one.

I managed to finish the outfits just in time for the kids to wear them when Mr K and I renewed our vows on Christmas Eve. And two different people stopped and said how beautiful the children looked!
