Description

Named because it makes me feel like I should be at a backyard BBQ drinking sweet tea from a red solo cup and playing cornhole. Anyone from the south knows what I’m talking about :). I made the afternoon tea top in a bright plaid shirting and added straps. This is a great and versatile pattern. I’ve enjoyed seeing all the variations here. Thanks, Ichigogirl for the great pattern!

And, yes, I’ve joined the blogging world, too. if you are interested,

    Lovely – Adding straps is a great idea for those that cannot rely on strapless bras for support

    Great variation and I love the fabric you chose. Some day I’m going to see if I can make myself a plus-sized version of this top. AND there is nothing like a good glass of Sweet Tea on a hot summer’s day!!!

    Nice top. I tried to download the pattern and all that was there were the instructions and no pattern pieces…do you know where I can get the pattern pieces to download? Or did I miss something. Love the straps and they look so easy to make and I would definetly add them as I cannot wear strapless!

      Thanks! I’m not comfortable going strapless either. I downloaded this pattern last year from the old site. There used to be a tab at the top where you could click on instructions or pattern and I think I had to print both to get everything. I’m not sure about now, though. Sorry if that wasn’t helpful!

      I downloaded this pattern from this new site and it worked fine. Maybe you can try downloading both the get all instructions and the get print at home version- thingy? Just a suggestion. :-)

      I did download the get all instructions and get print at home and copyshop but there was no pattern pieces there when I tried it. What site did you download it from?

    really love the straps variation – that makes me consider the pattern now, as I wouldn’t normally wear a strapless top. REally cute and thanks for the idea!

      Thank you very much! If you read below, I explained where I got the straps from.

      Thank you! If you read below, I explained how I did the straps. I’m not confident enough yet to just make it up as I go, so I used a strap variation I liked from another pattern.

    Looks good! You should do instructions for how you did the straps—-they look awesome (and I, for one, would be much more likely to make this top with straps) :)

      Thank you! I actually used straps from another pattern that I particularly liked. They are one of the strap variations from Simplicity 2694. Each strap is just two rectangles sewed together with 3 or 4 pleats at each end. I did a lot of trying on and adjusting the placement of them before I sewed them on in between the trim and facing. I’m not a huge fan of strapless things, either.
