Easy Top

Thanks for all the compliments on my dress last week. Did you hearthe summer dress challenge has been extended to June 19th. Yay!
So here's one of the tops I finished up last week. Butterick 5496 View A without the elastic in the waist. I wanted a loose fit in the waist and decided to leave that out. In the other top (not shown) I inserted the elastic but I'm thinking about taking it out.


















The fabric is lightweight (not sure of the exact name) but I picked this up in Nashville last year when we were on our road trip. It was easy to handle, not sliding all over the place. The neckline is finished with bias tape and topstitched. The sleeves have slits (under) and there are side slits and topstitched hems. This was an easy sew project(s) which was why I was able to sew up two this week.
This is the next project I'll be sewing for the summer dress challenge.
