Achievements

After reading everyone’s brilliant new year blog posts reflecting over achievements over the past year as well as planning upcoming ones, I started looking over my own sewing in 2015.

Old mans Tap Shorts (and the Watson bikini in its true element)

What a holiday. Costa Rica is without a doubt the greenest and lushest country I have ever been to. We managed to squeeze in a lot of different destinations and activities in our two weeks, so if you want tips, shoot me an email. Couldn’t recommend it more! We’re still suffering (the word suffering to be taken lightly in this context) from jet lag and an aircon induced cold, so I haven’t really ‘landed’ yet but thought my long suffering blog needed some attention.

While on the most gorgeous beach in Puerto Viejo Dan took some photo’s of me wearing my tropical Watson bikini (in an appropriate setting so to speak) which I’ll share below. But the main star of this show is one of the last makes I made before heading off – a pair of old man’s Tap shorts. Also photographed on said beach.

(Please note that these photo’s are taken after a long walk through 80% humidity and with absolutely no styling whatsoever. Sweat, bad hair and slightly odd facial expressions is what you are getting.)
