San Antonio, Tex...
an 1950’s inspired outfit with tropical flamingo skirt
circle skirt with elastic band
dyed elastic fuchsia but faded to this really pretty pink that matches the flamingos well.
its made form shirting fabric, so it’s really light but sturdy
the top and crocheted shrug were thrifted, I just added some darts to the top to make it more fitted.
I;m really glad I found a shrug that matched the skirt color :)
top and shrug – thrifted
3 yards shirting fabric (on sale)
3 inch white elastic (dyed fuchsia, faded)
flamingo colored thread for contrast seams on skirt
