Women’s Piko Top (XS-5X)
Trends this season are all about flowy, loose fitting, comfortable tops, including the oversized flowy piko style tops. This trendy style of top has been popular in Europe and Asia and is quick to make, as well as versatile with multiple hem and sleeve options. It is modest, yet still allows you to stay cool in the summer and the shape makes it easy for hard to fit shapes as-is! Perfect for those draping knits you find all the time but don’t know what to make out of them. Not only is it a quick sew, but it is easy to adjust the length for tall or petite body types OR to lengthen into a tunic.
The womens version comes in 10 sizes from Misses XS-XL and Plus Size 1X-5X, but I have also included great custom fit instructions. It is a quick sew with amazing results.
