Description

This was one of those wing-it-omg-this-is-NOT-going-to-work-out projects. Fortunately it was saved at the 11th hour by the addition of shirring around the underbust area, which saved it from mumu status. Miraculously, it neither falls of my shoulders nor shows my bra. Also I love the little sash. I do need to shorten it a bit if I’m going to wear it, though.

Material Notes

Some mystery stretch-woven with a crinkly, woven stripe; another thrift store score.

      Hmm, I will have to think about it. I might have trouble recreating it myself! ;)
