Description

These just seem so very WASPy to me that I couldn’t help but give them a cheeky title!

The shorts are Simplicity 7688, a vintage pattern from 1968. I adore them, though these came out a bit short, as I made them with the scraps leftover from another project and couldn’t add the 3 inches to the hem that I would have done otherwise. The shirt is a modification of Steph C’s blank canvas t-shirt pattern. Both are quite easy to make, and I had a great time wearing these in San Juan on Friday!
