I thought this pattern would be good for wearing to the beach. We spend a lot of time walking and swimming there and I hate getting sunburnt, especially since I wear my hair so short the back of my neck gets it.
The blouse was made from a heavy silk ( that I cannot remember buying) it was sooooo long ago. It has been cut out and hiding in the sewing room for about six months. I cut it out for the 2011 SWAP. ( I just cut out lots of garments, and tried not to procrastinate too much on my choices) I was into speed sewing! I couldn't really use it as it did not have any 'new' techniques. Now I remember, I had the pockets cut out (they were the new tech) but decided not to attract attention to that area of my body!!!!
