The Mermaid Top is a beautiful statement piece that everyone needs in their wardrobe! The Mermaid Top is the length of a tunic so it pairs incredibly well with your favorite pair of leggings. It is a garment perfect for all seasons! Wear it as is in the hotter months or throw on your favorite light jacket or cardigan as the weather starts to get colder. The relaxed fit creates a beautiful silhouette but leaves enough room to feel comfy. :) This pattern is written for sizes XS (S, M, L, XL).
