This is really really quick and simple. I just cut out two pieces of fabric and sewed them together. The front piece is slightly wider than the back piece to create a neckline.
No pattern used.

Material Notes

Some kind of very light and stretchy cotton blend




Garment Type
Casual, Romantic

    Did you leave the edges raw?

      Yes, the edges are raw. I machine washed it several times and it doesn’t fray!

    Nice, I would love to sew with no pattern, I made a blouse with no pattern, very easy as well, I will share pictures of it as soon as I finish, maybe I will draw some directions. Thanks for sharing your ideas, keep up the good work.

    Love it!!! No pattern, great look. I’m making one right now…! You should put a “make it” label on it as simple as it is, beginners might just feel encouraged by the pics. And the kitten is absolutely adorable!

      I’ll try to do it as some point. Unfortunately i didn’t take any pics while I was making this but I’m sure I can give it another go.

    Oh my gosh, is that the cutest kitty ever??? The top is adorable and looks so fun and summery. But, I will have to agree, the kitty steals the show!

    Damn clever lady. That looks so great…. (and of course the cat is a great sealer of the deal!) Going to do a quick walk through of how it is done??

      I know, my cat is the best :) I’ll probably make similar tops (this one was very improvised) and next time I’ll include a walk through.
