Description

I’ve been seeing this crossover top all over the magazines and saw the pattern in Burdastyle’s 5/14 issue # 132. Of course I had to make it. I wanted to make a romper but it was an epic fail so I drafted this matching skirt with the leftover fabric. My new favorite summer outfit! Easy breezy and fun to make.

Material Notes

1 and a half yards of printed cotton, half yard for lining, one inch non-roll elastic, thread

    This is really pretty. I was looking at this pattern too. Seeing it made up has made me want to give it a go. Looks lovely on you.

      Thank you! Yes, definitely try it. I omitted the welt pockets and it made it so much easier and quicker to make. I think you’ll enjoy this pattern.

      Thank you! If you aren’t afraid of exposing a little skin you can get away without wearing a tank top underneath. But I decided to be a bit more modest about it all. Plus it can get a bit chilly…

    very on trend this top and looks great on you. I was thinking to make a white one, could go with flared skirts or skinny jeans :)

      I think this top would go great with either skirts or jeans. You’d just have to be ready for that little exposure of skin. That’s why I wore a blank tank top underneath. Thank you for checking out my project!

      Thank you! What is truly interesting is trying to dress myself in this top. If I’m not careful I can strangle myself! Take care Liliv!
