Northern Sea

The seaside in the north. I didn`t know it`s that beautiful. It`s all I love about the sea. Wide, Windy, empty and lots of shells in the sand. I need to see more. I would love to walk on such beaches for hours. Just me, the ocean and the smell of salt.

I`m wearing No. 8 Svaneke by How to do fashion, in a special cotton piqué, I bought in Paris. I sewed a size 34 based on my measurements. The only adjustment i had to make was to lower the darts by 1.5 cm. The bustpoint was way off for my small bust.

The pleated skirt is actually a hack, you`ll find instructions on the how to do fashion blog. Easy to do. I`m so glad I added pockets into the seams. So much more comfort. The skirt is made from 6 panels, it has a good weight. I like that, it makes a nice sound when i move.

I left the back of the top open. I just added one golden snap at the top to close it. I was afraid it would look to ascetic otherwise. And i love the sneak peek at my tree.
