Yesterday I whipped up this simple top after seeing people wearing similar ones around town. I thought they looked comfortable and the design is so simple I thought it would be a great project for summer sewing. I know I’m not the only one who gets busy and begins to neglect their sewing space when the weather gets nice!
It ended up being just a twenty minute project, and it’s as easy to wear as it was to make. There is no need for a pattern as it was as simple as three pieces, and since I used a knit that’s pretty stable and not prone to unraveling I just left the neckline and sleeve holes unfinished.
To add a little something special to this simple top I put a couple of grommets onto the back and strung some chain I had between them. (note that I said grommets, not eyelets. Grommets have two pieces that fit together while eyelets are the just one piece. It makes a big difference in how well they will stay in place and not get ripped out. Also, when setting grommets into stretchy knits you want to remember to use a smaller hole than you would with a solid woven fabric)
