Call it my fascination with pirates since early childhood, my 15 years of fandom for Sailor Moon and Japenese school uniforms, or the whole nautical thing in general; I have always loved these types of things.
I’ve been looking for vintage 40s sailor outfits for a long time, but can never find them.
Therefore I found someone who sews them on etsy: Jitterbuggin
She is super sweet and very communicative and talented!
I didn’t take enough pictures at all of the back, but there are two red stars, one on each side.
no, I didn’t cut my hair. I gave myself faux short hair (it’s a good trick)
and no I haven’t played violin since I was nearly 9, but I’d love to pick it back up!
and I also have another similar dress that I’ll be posting pictures of soon as well.
