This pattern was tested by my lovely testers and they did a wonderful job. For some, this was their first time making a garment.

This is a great top for the spring and summer time. You can use this as a bikini top cover or make this top longer for a full bathing suit cover up. You can pair this with your favorite tank top for a fun top to wear around town.
