Summer Top

Perhaps one of the best fibers to experience from spring to autumn in garments like this. I am talking about cotton! Yes, it drapes beautifully, and gives freshness and softness to the touch. Wearable over sleeveless dresses, blouses or just goes well by itself with skirts or pants. This pattern is really easy to follow. Constructed from top-down seamlessly, and ending it with a bit of lace for sleeves and bottom.
