Description

I’ve wanted a pair of high-waisted polka dot culottes for months now, and I found a wonderful vintage pattern that suited my needs nicely! In vintage sizing, I’m a 16, so this also meant my first foray into the world of resizing!

As for the half Summer Essential item – that would be the Afternoon Tea Top I whipped up from a jersey remnant, which only counts as half because I did a bit of a botched job to be honest!

Check out my blog for more info!

      Hi! I made it from a vintage pattern I bought on etsy, there’s a link to the seller on the blog post I wrote about it and I added the image for you :)
