I love love love this! Seriously adorable.
I want to borrow it and have a photo shoot and that's honestly saying something b/c I am no model. Vintage poses and black and white photos are a must in this.
I am so jealous of your skills.

Thanks so much for all the sweet comments!

For all the peeps wondering about the material: I used suiting (a heavy weight cotton blend)... I wanted it to be pretty sturdy to stand up to lake conditions.  The belt keeps the top in place, but you can see right down the top if I'm bending down, so I'll be wearing a cami underneath fer sure.  It stands up really well to water... I'll probably have more details after using it all weekend!

SO adorable!  It looks fantastic on you!  Now you need to have someone take pictures of you at the beach, holding a beach ball or eating ice cream on a boardwalk or something.  Reminds me of some pretty old photos I saw once at Coney Island.  Beautiful work!

Ok, this is fantastic!!!!!! Shocked

I am so making myself one of these, so I can hide all the parts I don't want shown! (maybe not, because that would be long pants and a long top, but you get the idea)
