project 19: festival crop top

I know that many people are craving fall weather, but that’s all we’ve had here in San Francisco. We’ve had chilly days, and apparently the coldest July in recent history. Our summer is coming up here in a month or so and I am super pumped about it. I’m getting ready with all my summer supplies, like a cute sunglasses case, a beach bag, and, a made-for-me bikini top. Summer’s not over yet, and let’s just say I’m looking forward to basking in the sun. It’s not all been doom and gloom though. A weekend visit to Sacramento in 100 degree heat was all I needed to break out this crop top.

This is my first garment pattern that I’ve been working on for a while now. And… I’m excited to announce that I will be offering this pattern for 50% off (because I know I have some kindred spirits out there that won’t give up on warm weather yet!).

This really is the best summer top. Even though the back ties, it stays on all day, and keeps you nice and cool. (I wore this all day yesterday, rode bikes, hung out and the sun, and it was not smothering at all.) The reverse stockinette stitch hugs snugly under the breast so there’s no involuntary peek-a-boo happening. The back ties lay flat and don’t dig into your back because of the gentle tapering of the sides. The current pattern is a women’s medium size, but new sizes will soon be developed! Stay tuned!

I might be a little partial, but this is my new favorite top…

Get it through my Etsy store or Ravelry!
