For those of you not born yet in the 80’s yes, this was a look I swear I still remember from back then. I’m old. Anyways…this is a Burdastyle pattern from 6/2013 #125. Easy as can be. So comfortable to wear and much easier to wear then the neoprene they were using for the black panels back then. Originally, wetsuits were the inspiration for the look. I saw this gorgeous blue fabric at my local fabric store and I had to use it. I knew it was okay when my son said it looked “sick.” “Sick” I guess still being tossed around for the current word as “cool.”
