Summer Essentials – Striped Crop Top

So this wasnt in my original project list but since we have all the way until August I am going to be ambitious and add an extra top.

I used the Port Elizabeth Top  pattern that the lovely Goldfinch and Eagle posted. The pattern is free and super simple. And its a great loose fitted crop style top that is super comfy and popular this summer. Its a great beginners project!! It only took about an hour in total to finish this up. Gotta love instant satisfaction sewing!

I used some striped cotton I’ve had in my thrifted fabric¬†stash for forever and I just love how it turned out. This is like the perfect summertime outfit for me especially the headscarf since my hair is at a super awkward length right now and all I want to do is cover it up!

I opted to cut the front pattern pieces on the fold instead of having a seam down the front.

I look a bit like a pirate but who cares!! Hope everyone has a spectacular weekend!
