Keep the feel of innocence with this tie at the shoulders girls' tank. Worked as two bodices, completed in the round and adorned with ribbon, every little girl will enjoy this country charm. This design came to me as a time of reminiscing, when I was a kid, my mom use to make me sundresses that were gathered at the bodice and had ribbon straps. This top is my remembering of those summer days while updating it to a shirt, because it works better for climbing trees.

I am a self taught crocheter, learning from a well out of publication book, when I was 10. My mom always had arts & craft projects around the house, so I don't know a day with crafts (you really can find craft everywhere you look, even if you don't expect it!). I have recently had crochet patterns published, even though I have been designing for years and not realizing it. Check out my blog at
