I love this twin set and there are multiple reasons for this. My top reason is the fact that it is super comfy. The pedal pushers are made of a lightweight stretch cotton and are a little on the loose side, so they don't suffocate you like some capris. Plus, bending down doesn't require you to have 10 years experience practicing Yoga. The bolero is also really lightweight and stretchy, making for an overall super comfy outfit.
In terms of fit, this was spot on for me. I am wearing a UK Size 8. The bust size of the jacket is listed as 35 inches, which is spot on for my measurements. Unlike some other garments from Lindy Bop, there is plenty of room in the bust and the jacket was not restricting at all. The trousers came in at 26.4 inches in the waist. I am 26.5 inches and I would say that the trousers were by no means tight, so there is clearly a bit of give on this measurement. This is welcomed though, as aforementioned, skin tight capris are not always practical!
I paired the twin set with the Rose & Heart Print T-Shirt as the pattern on it was pretty much identical to that on the twin set and went really nicely with it. As you can see from the pictures though, this top comes up quite big!
Most vintage style fashions require tops to be tucked into either a skirt, shorts or trousers, so I don't think this long line top is particularly suited to that purpose. It would be fine under a skirt, but it is not great for tucking into trousers or shorts.
Overall, I adore this twin set. It is comfortable, lightweight, fun and a lovely outfit for summer. I felt super cute in it and I would highly recommend it if you are looking for something a bit different!
