Ithaca, New York...
I really like the neckline of the Alison swimsuit, so I decided to see if I could make it into a top. I had to fiddle with the pattern a bit (making the bodice slightly wider so it would be a bit more loose fitting, and adding a wider strap at the back so I could wear it with a bra). Although it’s a little cold in Ithaca to be wearing this just yet, I think it will be fantastic when it starts to heat up! I’m working on a skirt to match it now.
