Description

White is always Nice for summer, and for this top I’ve used wowen checkered soft Cotton. For front parts I used it on bias so it feels a bit stretchy with a soft “leather” ribbon. The pattern is from Patrones 05.2011.

For the shorts I’ve used pattern from Burda easy Fashion spring/summer 2012. I bought this cute elephant cotton fabric for childrens clothes, but since I love Orange I used it for my shorts :)
I have made another holiday shorts before, and I like this pattern a lot :)

    So clever! Trinny and Susannah said women should never wear shorts. If they saw yours they would have to admit they were wrong!

    Such a cute ensemble! The elephant print is adorable, I don’t I would have thought of shorts for it but I am glad that you did because they are perfect! A little funky, fab, and modern all rolled into one :)
