Description

This was a quick make, I needed something comfy to wear since the sun is out. I will definitely use this pattern again but with a different fabric texture. It was very straight forward and easy to follow. I decided not to use the drawstring for the waist as I wanted to try using the elastic all the way through.

Material Notes

I used a Viscose fabric.

    Love the simplicity of style and fabric pairing. Wonderful for a warm day. The fabric is fresh and looks very comfortable, agree on elastic, I find it more comfortable than drawstring. Nicely done
