Think Spring??? Let's Go Right to Summer

What a winter this has been for the East coast! Record amounts of snow in the mid-Atlantic, while up here in central Maine we haven't had a snow storm since New Year's Day. Since then we've had plenty of rain and warm temps to melt all of the existing snow giving way to an early and messy mud season.

I'm looking forward to spring...although I have a feeling we're not out of the woods yet. I'm sure March will have some tricks up it's sleeve. We'll more than likely have a whopper of a snow storm to hit us in the coming month.

So, let's skip talking about spring altogether. Let's jump right into summer. Beaches, clear skies, hot sun...nothing is better than summer! Get a head start on your summer wardrobe with a beachy sarong, the perfect bathing suit coverup!

For the sarong below I chose a red/orange cotton batik with a floral print. A batik is a type of dyeing technique. The colors are very saturated.

The top is designed to tie in the front or use a special clip to keep it in place. This top has a slight cap sleeve. All seams are serged and hems are finished with a rolled edge.

A sarong skirt is traditionally a large rectangle of fabric that can be twisted, tied, and folded in a variety of ways to acheive different looks. This skirt is made of the same material as the top. All seams are serged and all hems are finished with a rolled edge.

This particular sarong was a custom order. I do plan on making more and adding them to the shop in the coming months! Until then, you can place your custom order at
