Summer Play Outfit

Another pattern from the Real Martha's vintage stash (although this is one of the more modern patterns in the bunch)...  super cute shorts and cross-back top for Zoe for next summer:

I really like the cross-over back on the top... kinda hard to see in my photo, but I know Zoe will rock it:

The fabric is some gorgeous Amy Butler fabric that Jenny sent me (thanks, Jenny!!): Daisy Chain Deco Rose Navy.  The pattern is Butterick B3832, view B and was pretty straightforward, with the exception of the shoulders on the top.  It's a fully lined top, and the last place that the lining and front come together is the shoulders... I struggled with that area and mine are a little strange looking as a result, but you have to look pretty close to notice. 

Lincoln didn't notice the shoulders:

He did appreciate the top's easy-on, easy-off/no closures look. 
 Particularly the easy-off aspect of it:
