I made this outfit for last summer and wore it a lot then; the top is McCalls 4454 view C and the skirt is Vogue 7880 view B. The straps and edging on the top are a lovely thin natural coloured crochet border with black velvet ribbon woven through, some of the latter I used to make a little bow on the bodice also. The bottom edge of the top and all the edges on the skirt are finished with a black rolled hem done on the overlocker. The fabric is a self embroidered soft sage green. The days are warming up but this purple Metalicus cardigan is thin enough to wear on a mild day like today.
After a bit of gardening we plan to visit my brother for his birthday ( and photograph my sister-in-law's tea cosy!)
Thongs (flipflops); bought in some little shop in South Africa
