yo ho, yo ho, a pirates like for me.
Back in july I posted a project 'Tweedle Collar' as a present for my friend. I recently decided to make a sailor girl version for myself, and a how-to!
Hope you like, and please post your version if you give it a go!
The tutorial looks quite long, but I've laid it out in more steps to provide you with more pictures and clearer instructions.

Ok so first, gather everything you'll need.
Next, you'll need to cut the pattern out of paper. I began by drawing a rectangle, and then freehanded a circle in the middle. Then, with a ruler I drew two lines coming from two corners and meeting in the middle at the circle, like a triangle. Finnaly I cut it out.
I then cut the pattern out twice in the white fabric, and once in the interfacing.
Next, iron on the interfacing. If, like me you can't work out which side of the interfacing is the sticky side then sandwich the interfacing bettween the two pieces on fabric and iron.
Once the interfacing is firmly attached to one piece of fabric, pin the two pieces of fabric together, ensuring the interfacing is facing outwards.
Now, onto the bow.
Cut out 2 fat rectanges in the navy fabric, and one in the interfacing.
It should be slightly bigger than the size you want the bow.
Now iron on the interfacing, and sew all around the edge, leaving a small hole to turn it right side out.
Now cut out a longer rectangle, two in navy fabric, one in interfacing.
