This top is made from fabric that I bought in St Lucia, Caribbean, the fabric actually has St Lucia printed on the edge , it has a sea scene print and around the neck line I sewed on beads and buttons. When I wear this top it always reminds me of my last trip to St Lucia and my mum as she is the one who taught me how to sew.
The pattern I used is from an vintage sewing pattern for The Sunday People Newspaper pattern circa. 1970s. The skirt I made a few years ago from an old pair of jeans
