Summer Crochet, Part 2

I'm making progress on my niece's top. 

I texted her Wednesday with the warning that I would soon need a decision (and measurements) about the straps. . . 

Thursday night I finished the body part. . . 

And she really wasn't feeling the loopy, lacy embellishment at the bottom. Which, honestly, wasn't a surprise. I mean, I like it, but the pictures she's been sending me are fairly plain with more of a clean aesthetic. 

I removed the loops Friday. But I haven't gotten a picture of it yet. This was enough to get her strap measurements, so I'm good to go on that. 

Hopefully I'll be done by next week. We'll see. It depends if the straps go easily or not so much.


  1. It's too bad she didn't like the embellishment at the bottom. I thought it was a nice detail without being too much. If that makes any sense.

    Best of luck with the straps!

  2. It's so pretty! I love the pattern and the color. It looks so neat and perfect. Great job.

  3. I agree about the loops. Looking good though!


  4. The blue is great. Hope it fits! I like the frill at the bottom, though.

  5. Love the colour and I like the loops. I know she will love it

  6. It's pretty. I, personally, feel it looks better with the loops but it isn't my top. Good luck with the rest of the project.

    1. Thanks. Yeah, I think it needs a little something, but I won't be the one wearing it.

  7. The lacy look is cool. That would be a pretty look for sleeves.
