Description

Made using one of the variations of McCalls 2772… an old pattern, and the same one I used last year but I really really like this silhouette. This is based on the bikini design, with an added self-drafted skirt section. I like how the added skirt makes it look slightly old-fashioned, and the bright overly cheerful colour is just what I crave for this summer…

    Lovely colour and truly inspiring. Since we’re in for a hard winter in my part of the world, I’ll save this as a favourite to get me through,
