SLS Summer Top Series 2

Linen Top 2

Linen Top 2 – Butterick 5891 in a print!

Different Linen, Same Pattern.

This one is definitely summer.

The print is larger than I am typically comfortable with, but it was too pretty to linger in The Stash any longer.

Butterick 5891 by Katherine Tilton with the same modifications.

White Voile Inner Collar

White Voile Inner Collar

The large print did not need any coordinating fabrics, so the bias binding for the outer collar was cut from the same fabric as the body.  The inner collar and front facings are a plain white voile from The Stash.

The entire top must weight only a few ounces – the linen is very lightweight.

Stash Buttons

Stash Buttons

The buttons were Stash Finds that were double-layered.  The ballet pink base buttons are actually upside down! The vintage “lace” buttons are perfect for such a lightweight top.

Linen Top 2 - Back View

Linen Top 2 – Back View

The back view shows the angled hem of the top.  By adding length to the body, the hem hits at about the hip.

Lightweight and Lovely!

Perfect for Summer!
