This is probably my favorite outfit that I made for the trip to Florida.
I made the trousers using Simplicity 4401. The top is Sew Lovely B70. Turns out, if you make a bra pattern out of cotton twill, it magically becomes a beach top!
It was the perfect outfit for wandering the strand and looking for evidence of
the 1960 film "Where the Boys Are".
Unfortunately, on the inside, the Elbo Room is not as cute as I remember from the film. (Then again, the interiors were shot on a lot so I don't know what I was expecting.) But at least it's still there! And it's very cute from the outside!
It was eight thousand degrees and one million percent humidity that day. But, as I come from the land of perpetual Fall, I won't complain about a little heat.
Still, I couldn't wait to get back under that parasol.
