Simple Modern Swing for Spring Top #2
I could not pass up these orange circles. I was supposed to be stash-busting, but I do “need” another spring top or two. This one came together quickly and is just what I had in mind for wearing with shorts to hop on my bike with kids in tow (my favorite summer transportation).
The pattern is another from Simple Modern Sewing. I slightly altered Pattern #7 (Sleeveless Blouse) to create a more modest shoulder and neckline. The shoulders were increased an inch toward the inside and the outside. The neckline was raised an inch too. I finished the sleeves and neckline with bias trim used as facing. Oh, and the orange circles….they are Alexander Henry’s Garden Spirals.
