Annie's Trunk show: Totally Tropical

Totally tropical is a two piece ensemble that's resort-ready. The skirt was created first as a standalone piece. Made from a Burda Bridal dress skirt pattern that has princess seams, it is fitted in the hips and flared out, ending in handkerchief points at the hem. Fabric is a rayon tropical print lined in china silk. The top is an OOP Style pattern that I once created as a sundress. The top was cut to match the bottom and has princess seams with side front and backs that extend to form shoulder straps. The top was underlined with Angel Face (sold at AAF) to minimize wrinkling and then lined with china silk. The buttons are whimsical and I have used them in many outfits.
