    I think its cute....I recently bought a white mini with a single black stripe on the bottom and its very sailor girl... ;) I'm pairing it with a vintage coat jacket and just a plain tank and...maybe some shoes similar to those you posted...I think the nautical thing is classy...

    I actually bought it for sailing though....spending a weekend next week with my boyfriends parents and all their freaking socialite friends :wacko:

    I think sailor hats are the cutest things!! Not sure how well they'd fit in in an urban setting though... :lol:

    Hmm...I have a vintage pattern for a Middy blouse which I am saving for cosu-play use, I think.

    Nautical-inspired clothing can be incredibly smart. I love peacoat-style jackets and coats. I have two slightly different pea-coat type jacket patterns, one being vintage and very mod, with a stand-away collar, and the other being contemporary and much like the peacoats that GAP was selling this past fall.

    Here is that middy pattern. The trousers are included :ninja: I think I would use a kilt-pleated skirt, instead, if I used it for a cosu-play costume. The other views of the trousers are from the front and show the faux placket with six buttons and soutache braid trim.

    Love the pattern - slightly off topic As you like it - do you buy old patterns on line or just locally? :ninja:

    Thanks :flower:

    I mostly get them from yard-sales and thrift-shops, though some of them were ones my Grandma gave me that she had used for stuff for my aunts and my mom, some came from my husband's aunt, some were given to me by a neighbor-lady, and some more came from a friend of mine who cleaned out the attic at her folks' old farmhouse when they moved in to town.

    So short answer, I have never bought any patterns online. I have never had the need to; I seem to find plenty locally or have them being given to me by people who have them but don't want them and know I like them.
