Summer Comfort

We’re in the dog days of summer and cute tops are what you need to get you through in style!  Dorcas has made just such a top that is light and fun and great to wear on those blistering hot days.  Thanks Dorcas!!

This halter top is Pattern #105 from the new July issue of BurdaStyle and this floral print viscose poplin from Sew Much Fabric is the perfect fabric for it! This pattern needs a lightweight, drapey fabric to show off the pleated detail on the bodice and the poplin fills the bill.

Here is a line drawing for a better look:

I left off the ties and lengthened mine 2″ but otherwise made no changes to the pattern. I will tell you that the side zip is not necessary. The cut-in shoulder style and deep V in front lets this top easily go over your head. Skip the zip!

I’m wearing my top with Grainline Studios Maritime shorts made from black double cloth linen (Sold Out–but you can view other linens here) that I got from Sew Much Fabric several years ago. Love that stuff!

Personally, I think my halter top is every bit as cute as the one in the magazine!

Maybe even cuter!
