Simple Modern Swing for Spring Top #2

by lowbeamstudios

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.
