    I knew I wanted to make a top like this within the next few weeks (once i have finished school), but wanted the neck like up a bit higher, will consider coping this pattern though

    I realy like the braided necline. I would never have come up with it but I like how it resembles a sort of build in necklace.

    Oh, it’s so nice! I was thinking about making something with a braided neckline further on, maybe this one? I really like the back too.
