I created this diy palm print short set from a rayon crepe fabric I purchased from Fabric Mart’s brick and mortar store in Hawaii. When I purchased this fabric, I had absolutely no idea what I was going to make with it, but I figured whatever I made would be appropriate and tropical looking for the island, because of the palm print. Very logical way of thinking, minus the fact that it is brown/black and no some vibrant and bold color combination..lol
Well let first start off by saying that I am very happy with how the simon top and shorts turned out in regards to my sewing, but not so sure about my choice of using this fabric for this two piece set. Thinking I maybe should have made some wide leg, extra long palazzo pants instead. I’ll try styling the pieces separately, like the shorts paired with my black off the shoulder sweater and the kimono top paired with a black tank midi or maxi dress, or may black shorts or palazzo pants and see if they are keeper pieces as separates.I will try making another short set similar to this but I have to find the right print fabric!
Thank you for stopping by!
