Airy Singlet

For almost my entire life, I went on vacation to Menorca, a little island in the Mediterranean Sea. First as a child, with my parents, brother and sister, and now with my own family. Of course I've seen other places meanwhile, but I always come back to Menorca. I love the island, the people, the food, the vibes and of course the friends who live there. 

For the first time since I have kids, I go on my own to Menorca, to visit my friends and to celebrate Festes de Sant Joan. I'm really looking forward to it, but (of course) there's the guilt, because my daughters love Menorca, too, but I'm going alone (for my husband it's all the same, he doesn't have the same nostalgic feelings for the island as I have, and he thinks Menorca is as good as any other island). 

This week I started making a couple of clothes to bring with me.

At first there is the airy singlet. I bought a simple, cheap singlet, crocheted a pretty doily, embroidered the doily to the singlet and cut out the back. Perfect for a trip to the sun!
