Brooklyn, New Yo...
I made this unitard (which I’d rather call a maillot) from the same self-drafted pattern I used for my No Windows Dress. I’m calling her the Bardot, because it reminds me of something swank and 60’s on holiday in St. Tropez.
I sewed a bandeau bra, with cups, into the maillot, so no bra needed.
The skirt is a version of my Tough Love in the City Skirt.

I added a little tutorial on how I drafted this pattern on my blog: http://daughterfish.com/?p=1543
Hit the city streets in adventurous looks with utilitarian details like cargo pockets and belts.
Twists on feminine classics, like a bold patterned shift dress and pants with a racing stripe.
