This top was designed with not one, but two Melanie’s in mind. While both of these ladies are certainly baad mama’s, my hope is that this particular tee will capture the imagination of everyone who loves a good slightly over-sized top with some flair.

Designed to fit loose, with some drama in the back, the slightly boxy shape is flattering on all profiles and sizes. Great on its own or layered, The Melanie Tee is just the thing to see you through every season.

This top is designed to have room, but not too much. For a fitted top you may wish to size down from your actual bust measurement. For a roomier top, size up! The chart included in images will give you a better idea of the amount of yarn needed per size.

I have graded this pattern according to Crafty Yarn Council sizing standardizing from XS-5XL with bust measurements ranging from 28-62 inches.

If you have any questions please feel free to message me. Baad Mom Yarns has generously offered a discount on yarn for the release of the pattern through August 31. Just use code THEMELANIE when making a purchase through her Etsy shop for 15% off your order.
