Non-traditional Nautical

May 24, 2013

I just love nautical things! I love it even more when it’s in a non-traditional color scheme.

Tada! I love wearing coral! So fun!

I used Simplicity 2801 c. 1949 with a combo of the cuff from view 1 and the pockets from view 2. (Because what dress can’t be improved with pockets?)

Initially, I had planned on a solid dress with no trim but it was just too much coral. So out came the nautical braid and a nice white belt to break up the dress a bit.

It was a lot of work getting the trim to be straight and even but it was so worth it! More photos here.

  1. I’m obsessed with coral this season. 😀 The white piping details are really a fantastic addition to this dress. They make it extra special.
