Hello there! Wanting to create a super easy crochet top for the Summer, I whipped up this pattern that doesn't take a handful of time to make and is quite perfect to wear! I love overlaying lacy tops over dresses so this top will for sure be a piece I will wear over and over! Hope you enjoy!

Once both of the pieces are created, for the FRONT and the BACK of the top.
Turn the vertical crocheted piece Horizontally to begin the armhole/sleeves of the top.

(This step is to sew the crocheted pieces together to create your top.) Once both of the parts of the top are created. Lie both pieces flat. Now sew the sides together, leaving the armholes, the neckline and the bottom of the top free.
