Another look around gold and black! (I know... I've been obsessed with the color scheme lately. lol!)
It's been hot and humid lately, making me resort to (previously dreaded) shorts! These are the yellow pair I made a few weeks ago; actually this is the first time I wore them! Awful, I know: have a piece of "new" clothing lying around for weeks unworn. I do that a lot with new acquisitions; sometimes it takes me a little while to work something into my wardrobe (or not--other things get worn right after I buy/make them!). Or in this case, work up the courage to wear shorts (which isn't my favorite garment, as you all know ;).
The top is something I refashioned from a top I made last year. It wasn't being worn very often; mostly because the pattern I used (from BurdaStyle) didn't fit me very well. Inspired by 1950s strapless swim suit tops, I whipped this up Saturday morning! I've worn it about 4 times since (so see: some things I do wear immediately! lol). hehe!
