Simple Summer Top

Sweet and simple short-sleeved style with elasticated neck and sleeves, or make an alternative cropped to waist length version, shown right, which has an elasticated hem. Either version works well with skirts, loose trousers or jeans and both make a pretty and versatile addition to your wardrobe.
