Yesterday was the guild's retro ice cream social. We had rotten luck with picking a date with this event, and a lot of our regulars couldn't make it due to personal conflicts. But even though our group was small, we still had a great time and I was so glad I was able to go! Beth Marie's in Denton is the most adorable little retro ice cream shop, and we got a lot of positive attention and comments from the other guests. It was a such a fun little outing. More photos can be found on flickr.
But luckily, I did have enough of the print fabric left over for the bra top. Although it isn't pictured with the skirt on my pattern envelope, you can see examples of a cropped top worn with a long skirt in other playsuit patterns, like this one, so I knew it could be worn that way.
My midriff hasn't seen the light of day since the mid-90's, so I was really nervous about taking pics of this second look. LOL! I don't think it is something that I would wear often, but if I was at a pool or the beach, I think it would fit in well and be quite cute and summery without being too revealing. And actually, the bra top is my favorite part of this whole pattern. It is very comfortable and I would love to make up a few more to wear as pajamas or when lounging around the house during the summer.
You can find a few more photos of both of these outfits on flickr.
