***
Sweet and simple and super-swingy… The idea was to give that gauzy, “tutu” feel while keeping this top modern and practical. The result is not too frilly but definitely girly!

This top is knit seamlessly from the top down. First it is worked flat with an I-cord edging, then it is worked in the round. Stitches are picked up around the body to create a welt, then the ruffled skirt is worked in the round to the hem. The sleeves are worked in the round. An attached I-cord and an I-cord button loop are worked on the neck portion.
