Newport , Kentuc...
I found this 1970’s muslin fabric at a thrift store in Ohio, and fell in love immediately! Such a beautiful pattern, and it is SO SOFT. For this project, I used a vintage dress pattern. I made it into a two piece instead- crop top and a gathered skirt. In the back (which I didn’t get a pic of :( ), I altered the back bodice so that it only connects at the middle with one big bakelite button (which belonged to my Great Grandmother). It’s is super comfortable, and perfect for summer!
Leopard and snakeskin are the new neutrals.
