We love this shabby-chic Shoulders in the Sun Top, and it would look gorgeous in so many different colourways on a hot summer day or at an evening party. It features a tie up front enclosure for a tighter fit, and options to extend the length for comfort! Use your stash or pick a colour scheme from 50 shades in Paintbox Yarns Cotton DK.
