Summer Essentials Sew-Along: The Casey Top

The Casey top

I take no cred for this top. Or not for the design, anyway… The design is all thanks to this post by the lovely Casey. I saw the top and thought, hey! I want to do that too!

So I bought some cotton voile and found a perfect pattern for the crochet at mypicot (what an amazing resource that site is!), and I started to crochet.

I first made a square and measured it. Then I took my above-bust measurement, and divided that with the size of the square, and I got the number of squares to be made. Easy peasy. Then I joined them with filet crochet, and sewed the crocheted part and the cotton voile part together.

An easy- to- wear top made in no time!

    I saw that top, too, and was in love! Yours is wonderful, too, and I like the added touch of the crochet.

    Lovely! You did a great job using the inspiration photo and making your own version.

    Beautiful, I never thought of crocheting the top portion myself. Wow!
