For this set I used the Burda Young Fashion pattern #7997 and just made the tank top and shorts. I used some vintage fabric acquired at my local thrift store. The fabric is semi sheer and has a nice polished cotton sheen and print. I edged the bust with some cream metallic ruched trim and used a vintage length of cabbage rose lace for the front.
The straps are vintage seam edging lace.
This pattern was very simple to use, and the shorts came out fitting impeccably. I will definitely use this pattern again!
