It’s BBQ time again!

Just a quick post to show off a new top that I’ve made!

I just adore this BBQ print fabric. I made a dress from it earlier this year and I just had enough extra fabric to make this sleeveless top.

The pattern I used was Advance 8511 but it would be super easy to use any front buttoning blouse pattern to make a sleeveless top. This pattern didn’t even have facings! It just called for finishing the armholes with bias binding.

Do you like sleeveless tops and dresses for summer? More details and photos over on the blog.
