Made with oversized pale blue gingham, it has a very high cinched in waist. I love the concealed pockets and the handmade buttons at the back (boy making buttons is fiddly!). I’m unsure whether to add the red bows on the corner of the pockets to jazz it up. I was going through a severe dorothy phaze when I made this, I wanted everything I made to be in gingham! I really like the shape of it, it certainly does wonders for my bum, but it is a bit of a wiggler. Not sure I could run for a bus in it!
