Description

This is becoming my favourite summer outfit, whether on holiday or stuffy London! The shorts are made with a tropical print lightweight denim and are the shorts portion of the By Hand London Holly Jumpsuit. I like how sleek, simple an comfortable they are, allowing the print to take centre stage. The top is made using a fine Italian wool also from Mood Fabrics and uses the Inari Tee from Named with quite a few adjustments. It’s been lengthened, had the sleeve bands omitted and I’ve made a cut out feature of the back! Full details on how I did this and more pictures can be found on my blog here http://chainstitcher.blogspot.co.uk/2016/07/tropical-shorts-and-back-cut-out-tee.html

      Thanks! It was quite difficult to work out how to put it together but I’m really pleased with the end result!
