Great pattern and very simple to make. Here's the first three tops I made.  Pattern versions include sleeveless, short sleeves, or 3/4 sleeves.  Three yoke variations.  Four main pieces (yoke front, yoke back, shirt front, shirt back)


I plan to make a different version for everyday of the week.
Only one rule: I can't purchase anything.  
Next I plan to use of some of my sari/saree fabric.

#1 my favorite. prefer the band at bottom, since it was a time saver.
#2 new, vintage denim sheet and denim fabric, turq/blue beads
#3 broomstick skirt fabric, turq beads, and silky turq. fabric.

These are great I love the first one too, but those are my colors. Great idea by the way making some clothes but not buying any new fabrics. Great job, Thanks for the inspiration.

Totally inspires me to actually MAKE some new tops this summer...if it ever gets here. Maybe if I make some cute tops, summer will come.... Anyway, what pattern did you use?

ETA:I'm a dingus...guess I should pay more attention to titles.

I used an old green skirt for the yoke and knit camo fabric for the body.   Lettuce edge on the bottom saved even more time.
