Ahoy, sailor! We’ve created a vintage-inspired nautical blouse that we know you will love to sew. Inspired by middy blouses, mariner scout uniforms, and ’50s fitted sailor dresses, this pattern is the perfect blend of sweet and sassy. We know you’ll love the shoulder princess seams, nipped waist, and your choice of a simple tied knot accent or the aptly named Gigantic Bow (inspired directly by a wonderful ’50s photo I found). And the Mariner is perfectly versatile too! Leave off the collar, and you’ve got a simple but lovely v-neck blouse. You can also make it sleeveless, and even make it into a dress bodice by cutting the pattern on the indicated line! The shortened bodice interchanges with the Liz and Lamour skirts so you can make a dress with a draped skirt, three-quarter circle skirt, or flared gathered skirts. So many possibilities!
