Summer rays

I made a Breton style top! Now it’s just up to the sun to get a move on and start shining.

I used lovely heavy Japanese knit cotton in olive-gold and white stripes.

The pattern I used was Grainline Studio’s Lark Tee – it’s a great pattern and comes together fast, but as usual I fell between three sizes. I cut the middle one but I think I’d cut the larger size next time, on account of my wide shoulders. I also cropped a few inches off the bottom which I think was a good idea. It’s just the right length. I’m not convinced by 3/4 length sleeves, but they look fine rolled up and that’s how I’m planning on wearing this top anyway. Plus I’ve already managed to get strawberry juice on the inner elbow, which sleeve rolling happily conceals.  

No matter – it’s a great top and I hope to wear it lots this summer.
