The Retro button top was inspired by an old knitted top, which I found at a jumble sale.
I imagine this top being super cool in the 1970’s, being worn at festivals all summer long. So let’s revive these long summer days!
The top is worked back and forth, button up. It has a short fit and can easily be worn to high waist jeans or skirts, as well as with summer dresses.

Size guide:
A summer top with straps will always seam looser and wider as the given measurements.
Choose a size that is 0- 5 cm slimmer (negative ease) than your bust measurement.
The stated measurement on the front page is for the finished garment.
