Ironcraft #30 "Hot"

For this week's ironcraft challenge I made a sarong to match an existing bathing suit.

I had already purchased some material that matched (back in MAY) but it sat on my sewing table while I did other things.

Thanks to this challenge, I got busy and crocheted a trim and made the sarong....which matched the bathing suit quite well.

Then I got carried away because the sarong turned out so I made a top.
It isn't complete though....not enough time.
I have to add ties which will improve the look under the bust line....the edges stick out in the photo.

no more over sized t shirts for me :-)

That looks fabulous! I love the trim on it.
By the way I love the new additions in your ETSY shop. The panda is adorable and the beanies are too. I love the idea of the crocheted dog balls too.
