Cute Sailor Dresses- my new spring theme!

I have been crazy for sailor this spring and have stocked up on a few dresses.  Some of them you have seen already in outfit posts but I wanted to put them all together as a resource for the sailor girls out there!
luxury craft dress $149 from modcloth.com
I haven't worn this dress yet because I was saving it for Easter.  I have since purchased about 12 other Easter dresses so I will be wearing it soon.  I am planning on removing the navy inset at the v of the collar called a " dickey"  and replacing it with red and white striped fabric.  I can't seem to find a piece of fabric that will work but I am still looking.  It fits true to size I got a medium.  It is super long (mid calf) for me but I like the 40's feel that it give the dress.  I can wear it with a cardigan because the back of the collar lifts up so you can put the cardi underneath!  A plus for chilly spring mornings and cool nights.  I highly recommend this dress!
Cute Clipper dress $104 from modcloth
This one is really cute!  It has an attached collar in the back so it doesn't do a cardigan well but I have a v neck cropped cardigan from modcloth that works.  It covers a little of the collar in the back but you still get the cuteness factor and stay warm too.  The fabric is thin cotton and unlined so it needs a slip but the fit is amazing!  I got a medium in this one.  I added a little white fabric "dickey" at the v neck because it was a little low for me but it looks like it belonged on the dress so I am happy with it.
Anchors a Sway dress $155 from modcloth
This one I actually didn't purchase because I found the exact same lovely anchor fabric online and just made my own for $30.  You can find the fabric here.  It is by Michael Miller Stay the course and has lots of cute coordinates that I am going to make for summer dresses.
Sea Shanty Singing Dress $129 from modcloth
This one runs small.  I ordered a large and I usually wear a 6 in dresses.  It is made from a heavy polyester gaberdine fabric that feels really nice and doesn't need a slip or lining so it will still be cool enough for summer.  It is really long and swirly!

I hope this little review helps you out with your sailor dress wardrobe!  have a great day today!
