I had about a yard of this cute cherry mini print cotton jersey material for a while.  I got it at one of Hancock's many sales.


You can't see here, but the straps are braided cherry material b/c I am lazy and it adds character!


On this close up, the boobs aren't that wonky.  I messed up the boob triangles twice and I was running low on material, so I overlapped them.  I think it looks like I planned it that way!  Grin



I'll be completely finished after I hand stitch the overlaps together.  YAY!!  Just in time for a trip to the beach!!

Comments/Critiques, please?

It's darling and I'm jealous. I'd love to be able to fit into a yard of material.

Our Hancock's closed. It was a bummer thing to happen. Hancock's was the best fabric store in town.
