Nordic summer is wonderful, although it always ends too soon. Honey has been asking me to go out more often while sun was still shinning, because it was gonna end soon, but I tended to think it could last forever. Just from the beginning of August, we already started to get some chilly greetings of the fall. Alas. I should have done what he said.

When it's summer, Stockholmers aren't shy to jump into their sea right in the middle of the city and enjoy the water. Tantolunden is a large natural green park in Södermalm, with a tiny mini beach and decks floating in the sea, where you can either dive from or sit and enjoy the sun.

For the last days of summer, I wore the navy blue linen halter top that I made with a pair of cropped white cotton pants. The linen halter top was original a dress-style long top which was one size big, so it was a bit like a saggy bag on me. While I am a fan of linen, I wasn't happy with that. So I designed and remade it into this one. It's my first time ever to cut and sew clothes from scratch, so it's not perfect. For instance, I sewed the underside of the back piece inside out. I didn't correct it as it's not super visible if you don't check closely lol. I am satisfied with my first work and look forward to improving better in my next!

Hope you're still having a fabulous summer!
