I used a piece of batik that was left over from a sarong-style skirt I made from Simplicity 7231 (oop).
I made this skirt several times pre-blog, and brought it out again for a tropical party we were invited to last summer. I wore it with a T shirt for the party, but always felt like the outfit needed a little something more. I was so happy to discover that I had enough fabric left for the tank top!
The Loes Hinse Tank Group is a "go to" pattern for me. I've made several easy little casual dresses from it that I wear in the summertime. Just the perfect thing for our 100 degree heat this time of year.
Here's the tank and skirt together. I love the pieces for the effect of a dress. And it's so cool and comfortable to wear!

In addition to this summer, I'm really looking forward to bringing this outfit along on our next tropical vacation. The pieces can be worn like this or separately, so it's really versatile.
