Criss-cross Top Vacation DIY

We're nearing our vacation to Hawaii (have wanted to go for ages, but am not the best flyer, so hooray for CA proximity!) and I decided to make some lightweight, comfortable, and warm-weather friendly garments.  In my delusions of grandeur, I told myself I was making my own "resort collection" :P

Difficulty: Very Easy

Time: ~1 hour

Pattern:  McCall M6751 A (minus the pocket), slimmed sides slightly, used a rolled hem on all raw edges

Materials: 1 yard of fabric - I used a lightweight knit from Fabrics R Us in San Jose

Likely, I will be wearing this top with a pair of shorts or a maxi skirt:

I also have a wrap maxi dress / coverup in the works for a future post :)

Hope everyone had a great weekend!


  1. Cute top! I love the sexy back :). You are too much making clothes before your vacation which I'm totally jealous of!

  2. Wow, the top looks great! I'm such in awe of you and Ping being able to just whip things up on the sewing machine. Have fun in Hawaii. Which island are you going to?


  3. Its very nice good job!
    i loved back side.


I'm the type of gal who gets giddy when I receive mail - it's no different with comments! I really appreciate the feedback and love hearing from you :)
