Description

I made this little crop top from a trifted childs dress, that has laid around almost two years, and the shorts are brown linen. This was also the first time I made any sort of pants! It wasn’t that hard after all but I still had a few problems with the fit.. I also made the crocheted violet floral-wreath. It’s a pity that summer is now practically over and I can’t wear clothes like this anymore, but luckily there’s so many more to come:)
Sorry for dark photos and that the shorts are so wrinkled! The linen isn’t maybe the best choise for shorts..

    I love this outfit! It fits you beautifully. Congrats on tackling fitting shorts—you did a fantastic job. I love linen. And I love that linen wrinkles. Wrinkles are linen’s characteristic birthright and should be celebrated!
