So I haven’t sewn from a pattern in.. oh, I dont know.. since Home Ec when I was 13 and I made a skirt that went horribly wrong (ish). It’s been free-styling for this girl ever since. This was my first return-to-pattern, and it was pretty simple. My only complaint is that the azalea pattern leaves no allowances on the straps/top for finishing/hemming the edges.. it’s pretty skinny once you cut it out.
