sailor knot top

Galveston, Texas...






this top started out as the 09/2011 Striped top #108A, however after basting it together (yes i basted a knit!) i decided that it just wasn’t very flattering on me. so i lowered the neckline, exaggerated the dolman sleeve, narrowed the hem, and added ties on the sleeves. i think it turned out pretty cute, and its the sort of easy top that i’ll probably get a lot of wear out of – especially on the weekends with leggings!

    Your top looks great and I do like the knot on the sleeve- a great idea. I am sure you will get a lot of wear from it and lots of lovely comments.
