I’m not sure how I stumbled across it, but I was on Youtube and found a tutorial from Made Every Day for her Summer Day Top.
It looked pretty easy, so I purchased the pattern.
It is easy!
There are many options (sleeves, cap sleeves, tunic, peplum, etc) and what I like most is the variety of fabric you can use.
To make my first shirts, I used quilting cotton.
In the video, she finishes her seams with pinking shears.
Instead of doing it after the seams were sewn, I cut out the pattern with pinking shears.
Between cutting and sewing (and interruptions from the kids), these shirts probably took me one hour each.
I wore one of them on a very hot day and I stayed pretty cool!

Have a great week!
