Nautical Ceylon


I’ve been wanting to make a nautical Ceylon by Colette Patterns for a while now. My inspirations were the little sailor play suits worn during WWII. I finished this in honor of Portland’s Fleet Week. I only made some minor changes to the pattern (raising the armscye, lowering the sleeve cap, and widening the sleeves). Colette really makes some of the loveliest patterns around. More photos and details can be found in my blog, Dapper Duds
