August turned my backyard into the Savannah. My brother’s cats suddenly think they are called Simba and Nala and that they have to hunt every pheasant that traverses their kingdom.
I tried to blend in as much as possible with this safari-top, and I sincerely hope that King Simba will not eat me…
The pattern is from Knipmode 05/2011, Zomers Tricot special, Top 101. The fabric is something I found on a fabric fair last year.
I made it more than a year ago, and I wore it a lot, so unfortunately it’s already a bit deformed. But then again, it adds to the casual I’m-sneaking-through-the-grass-trying-very-hard-not-to-be-eaten-by-King-Simba-look, no?
