How-To: Simple Summer Boatneck Top

Craft & Design Yarncraft

I love this great top from Jennifer Casa for Sew, Mama, Sew! She created the pattern after being inspired by a thrifted shirt she’d picked up for her daughters.

I determined that my girls’ top was basically a tank top with elasticized thread at the waist, neck and arms. I knew it would definitely work on the waistline for women of all shapes and sizes, but I wanted to find a more flattering neckline. Enter the wide boat-neck– I absolutely love the way it naturally falls off your shoulder, a little bit alluring and still totally presentable.

It’s a beautiful top, and I love that it’s made to be flattering for a variety of figures. Fantastic!
