I just keep churning out these Port Elizabeth tops! (I still have one more to go). I love the shape of the top and it is so versatile. I am into colour at the moment so I added the orange and magenta. I really love this top. I made these shorts to match, but they sit weirdly on my hips and therefore turned out a bit frumpy. I like the coral coloured pockets, but they add to the frump. I definitely need to revisit this pattern and make the appropriate alterations.
We photographed this outfit whilst travelling in Croatia, so apologies for the wrinkled clothes.
