Diamonds are a Girl's Best Trend

Tauranga, New Ze...






Thought these 2 pieces of material worked well together. The cropped pants are a medium weight cotton nylon boardshorts type material. The top is a digital print diamond repeat silk, with a slight stretch. It is very light, so I used a 2cm lace for the inside binding around the sleeves and neckline to avoid bulk. It worked really well and was soo easy. I’m happy with how it all goes together.

      Thanks Beccki. You should make the pant.They went together well and nice and roomy to wear. I made them slightly longer so I could I put wider elastic at the bottom just because I wanted that cuffed look. That was the only change.
