This women’s top makes a great layering piece or swim cover up for summer. Openings are made by a series of chain stitches staggered throughout in a pretty pattern. The top is comprised of two rectangles finished off with simple seaming to make the shoulders and side seams. This quick and satisfying project is a fun addition to your summer wardrobe.
