cropped crescent blouse

I’ve been meaning to make myself a cropped Crescent blouse for ages – i have been living in crop tops this summer and i knew that this would be a really easy pattern variation.

Since the pattern already has a waist seam, it was as simple as leaving off the included hem options and doing a rolled hem.

I love a quick project!  I can see myself making another of these – though admittedly the whether is getting cooler in Perth from now on, so i may need to save my next crop top for a few months.

And apparently i live in my midi culottes at the moment! Sorry not sorry!! hehehe i love my Tania culottes

Also don’t forget – if you’re a bit worried about what bra to wear with your Crescent blouse, check this post out  (Not to get all TMI on you, but i was wearing a nursing bra in all these snaps and you can’t tell. *scandal* )
