"I Can't Wait for Summer" Top

Last year I was blown away the people who entered in "Spring Top Week." This year it's called "Spring Top Sewalong" since it's more than a week.

The shoulders were much too long so I fixed that. I took in the sides a bit to make it more form fitting and less pregnancy topish. Lastly, I added some elastic to the back to add a bit more shape. Maybe someday I'll be brave and try shirring. Maybe.
