Newport , Kentuc...
For this outfit, I used a 1970’s stiff, cotton/poly blend fabric. The halter was made from a pdf pattern (found here→ http://www.etsy.com/listing/70095694/vintage-beach-bra-pattern-pdf-34-bust ), to which I made into a size 36, and elongated. Love it! I used slide fasteners in the back for closure. The skirt is a simple A-Line, fro which I used a pattern from the 1970’s. It’s very comfortable, was simple to make, and summery!
