I found this material the other day. It reminded me of the “Zulu” prints used in the recent Lover collection. I wanted to buy the Zulu pleat shorts during their flash sale but they had sold out of my size. I could have bought a beach bag as consolation, but I was disheartened. Anyway, the beach bags looked simple enough to make. So I did.
In other news, I’m going to St. Jerome’s Laneway Festival tomorrow. Can’t wait to see Florence + The Machine, Mumford & Sons and The XX. I plan on wearing a polka-dot playsuit. I’m excited.
