You always make such creative and useful pieces. Seriously, have you thought about writing a book on adapting patterns for outdoor gear? I would buy that from you in a heartbeat.

So rare to see activewear that is both beautiful and practical. Your outfit is gorgeous and the details are ingenious. Wow.

So cute! I love how you added details from one fabric to the other, it really makes the two pieces work together without having crazy tropical pants! And the crazy tropical top is so adorable!
