I’m quite proud of this! It’s the only thing I’ve sewn that isn’t just a dress. Sorry I don’t have better pictures of the actual sewing, these were taken for my blog. It has a ruffle around the top in front, I don’t know if you can tell. I used a vintage pattern for the shorts part and tweaked it a little so that I could add on the waistband, top, and ruffle. I made my own bias tape to go around the top.
Vintage cotton fabric, 18" black zipper, vintage pattern
