blossom baby


The fabric was from Spotlight and cost about $15, the HUGE floral print and bright colours really caught my eye (at first I had this earmarked for a pair of high waisted shorts). It does up in the back with push-buttons, while the black glittery ones I found in a tin at home are just for decoration. I like wearing it on its own, but a skinny belt helps to separate top and bottom a bit better. I'm so happy with how my pattern turned out (drafted it myself!), I can't wait to try it again in different fabrics! I'm thinking a black silk dupion for evening's out!
