The Sam Roberts Top

Added Nov 9, 2011

Calling this the Sam Roberts top because I made it for a his Burlington concert my girlfriends and I went to.
Using my 3 rectangles measurements, an elastic casing for the waist, gathered shoulder seams, and split side seams. This shirt was hit!

      posting the instructions later today. I based this top on my ‘3 rectangles dress’ which was made of jersey. Anything with a nice drape, woven or knit, will make a lovely version of this.
      stay tuned!

    I’m looking for tops to make that are both cute and conducive to nursing a baby. Would love more instructions on this!

    Gorgeous! That would probably be lovely as a maxi as well.

    Please do add instructions. The top is fantastic, and I bet a lot of people (including myself!) would like to try it.

    I love this top. I could see it getting a workout if it were in my closet. Do you know how much fabric you started out with?
