Though I'm not sure if the style is too young!

Ohhh that is cute! I don't think it is too young - we are only as young as we feel (within the realms of not dressing up as mutton dressed as lamb of course :giggle: ).

It looks cool and comfortable for summer but could also be worn over a long sleeved top or under a cardi if it was cooler.

@sim I was thinking about it as I'm actually tempted but worried it will make my already rotund derrière look even bigger :lookround:

@sim , @clothmama I really like that too. Would be great with some cut off leggings for my Florida holiday. I may have to order it for when I'm feeling better. I have tons of fabric I could use.

You dont' have the problem but I was thinking it would be quite good for my bingo wings as it is short but with a tiny bit of length. Can't decide about the bum issue :giggle:

I just spotted this free pattern (yes I am poor and tight :giggle: :giggle: :giggle: ) and thought it looked really nice.

Or does it look nice because she is gorgeous and thin and would it make me look like I was wearing a tent? Do you think that I could easily make the sleeves short and would it look OK?
