New York, New Yo...
I really liked this pattern. It turned out a bit tight in the bodice and a bit short (I’m 5’9" and forgot to adjust the length) but it looks really cute over shorts that way I can run and jump and not worry about what I’m showing. The photos don’t do the colors in this fabric justice. They’re absolutely gorgeous. I also modified the pattern by not lining the top area. My bosom would have fallen out if I added another layer there plus it just didn’t seem necessary. I also didn’t add the buttons or pockets to this one yet. (Ran out of fabric and didn’t have any cute buttons)
