Can't wait for summer, top!

I know it's the middle of winter, but I can't help thinking about  summer tops.  It might be the mild weather we're experiencing here in the Midwest, regardless, I'm already getting a head start on summer tops, this is the first summer top I've sewn this year, it's B5439.  Although it calls for stretch woven, I found a print I absolutely loved, but it happened to be cotton.  I figured what the heck, the worse thing that can happen is I won't be able to pull it over my head, in  which case I could always put a zipper on it,   I took my chances and it turned out fine.  Maybe next time I make this top, I will try  a knit fabric.


  1. Cute! I have made 2 other views from this pattern. I used a jersey for the ruffle view.

  2. Nice top! I can't wait until summer either.:)

  3. I like the top. Is that a Butterick pattern?
