This is such a fun top that I'm making several. This is the first one.Some are just for casual wear. This one is for a date with the Mr.
As you visit my blog, you'll notice repeats of this top and pants with different variations. Colorful pants using this pattern. Since I've made a couple of tops with this length, I've decided to hem the next tops about 2".

    1. Thank you, Judy! I'm sorry the pattern wasn't in. Hopefully, you'll get it soon. I'll advise you to check the length before cutting. I do plan to make one shorter and I'd like to make it dress length.
