Sunshowers



I bought 2 yards of this printed chiffon over a year ago, loving the pattern, and then it just sat around in the back of my closet waiting for a sewing machine to enter the room. This summer I am in love with anything long that moves, and hits the sand when I walk. I am also really into stuff that twirls.. It has a garter under the bust, because on the beach it needs to fit without being uncomfortable. The straps are braided and meet at the right shoulder, with one strip of fabric flowing down from it, and it is also lined. I kinda love it although when I started making it I had no idea what I wanted it to look like, just that I wanted it long.
In the city I imagine it with a wide belt and a blazer, or maybe a slim belt over the blazer..

Summer inspiration.
