Austin, Texas, U...
This is a self drafted top and my third version trying to perfect the design. It’s loose fitting because summers in Texas are hot and I hate wearing clothes that cling to my skin. I really like the way the stripes intersect at different angles at the collar and sleeves. The best part, though, is on back! I added a crochet applique (which I bought, I didn’t make) to the upper back for extra interest.
I wrote more in depth about the top on my blog
