Ok, I feel pretty freakin good in this outfit! I just live when an outfit turns out just how I was picturing it. I already knew the Spring Shorts were my dream shorts (this is actually my third pair), but I took a chance on this Simplicity top, and gosh - THOSE SLEEVES! Sooooo much love for those sleeves. I want to make another version in a yellow seersucker before the end of August, I just love it so much. The only mod I made to the pattern is my usually no-boobs adjustment - I removed the darts. Everything else was perfect as-is.

I also wasn’t so sure it would work in the end since I was using two slighlty different shades of green. I worried they would clash. But I love hos they look together, actually! ANd I didn’t have any fabric left for a Penny version, but remembered I made this other green set for her this past spring. So I was still able to live that mommy-and-me dream haha.
