Mono Tie Top

I made this top using an old linen skirt and some stashed cotton. I extended the pattern using the measurements of another favourite top and decided not to go for the fully lined version. Very easy to do, I am sure I will be making more. Thank you ginasophia! x

Material Notes

Black linen and crisp white cotton.
