Diamond Summer Top

Diamond Summer Top

      I love the spring and summer months because it means more of light weight wears. I decided to add this diamond summer top with its distinctive filet design to my list of summer tops as it is very light and perfect for summer. This top will definitely be a lovely extra to your closet.

Finishing

Place both panels together with the right sides facing. (I used the first row of each panel to determine the right side). Making sure that the rows align, sew from the bottom of the top to row 33(41) on both sides

For the shoulders, make sure the 9(13,17,17) stitches of each shoulder of the front panel aligns with the 9(13,17,17) stitches at the shoulders of the back panel counting from the edges.
