This top’s my first finished project of the summer. After school ended, I felt really burned out and tired of stressful projects; I wanted to make something simple and stress-free. The idea for this top hit me randomly, and it came together in a day.
I didn’t use a pattern; just rectangles sewn together with a neckline cut out. All openings are finished with bias binding, and the inside’s neat and tidy because it was constructed with all French seams. Even though it’s kind of sloppy in some spots, I’m really happy with how it turned out.
This top was blogged at sewcollegiatechristine.blogspot.com. Check it out! I’m a new blogger so don’t judge too harshly.
Cotton knit, lace.
