I was listening to spellbound by Siouxie and the Banshees and had this idea for something punk-ish and cropped.
Spellbound is a summery tee with a laddered v-neck which can be worn in the front or the back. The alternate side is a plain crew neck. It is knit in two pieces with shaping in the shoulders. The silhouette is inspired by an old cutoff tee, well worn and loved. Instructions for a longer, fitted, babydoll style bodice are included as well.
