My stylist friend asked me to be her model for a pinup contest that’s held at a local car show. I didn’t win, but I had such a fun time sewing my outfit!
I drafted the top, which took a couple tries- it’s not easy making bra cups when you have no idea what you’re doing!
The shorts are a combination of the Ruby shorts pattern and the Kasia skirt- two great patterns, and I’m very happy with the fit of them.
The top is a light cotton lined with teal denim. The shorts are a navy bottomweight, pocket pouch lined with the same teal denim as the top.
Take off with pleats, cut-outs, insets, and futuristic prints.
