When life is a constant mishmash of chaos and disaster, what do we have to believe in but ourselves? The Calamity Crop Top (or rather, Calami-Tee) is my little nod to self empowerment and taking back control over my body, myself, and my life.

There are 4 sizes included in the pattern.
XS (S, M, L) XL
30 (34, 38, 42) 46”/ 76 (86, 97, 107) 117 cm chest circumference
14 (15, 16, 17) 18”/ 36 (38, 41, 43) 46 cm length from shoulder
