Sorry, this pattern has been taken down. I’m working on re-issuing some of my earlier PDFs.

A pattern with options! Top down construction makes this easy to customize for your figure, and you have two versions to choose from. The pattern includes instructions to make either a short sleeve, cropped summer top or a more traditional length, 3/4 sleeve version you can wear year round.

The main element is the shaped neckline, accented by simple, textured lace down the fronts. The same lace is repeated in the back, and the bottom is simply hemmed to keep the attention up top. A band down the center again echoes the neckline and has a bit of positive ease for a relaxed edge - held together with a simple hook and eye.
