+ You can make this….

 top: oasap  pants: 7s   shoes: trouve  

I’m loving all the patterned tops these days, whether they are cats, horses, or birds. Just makes the outfit that much more awesome. So, I couldn’t pass up this top…and I bought one for my sister-in-law too. 
Want to make one for yourself? 
Just make this square top tutorial, but add four extra inches in the back. Then cut the back piece down the center, fold over the center pieces an inch and sew/iron. Then add buttons and button holes. button it up! Then just make sure the bottom hem is rounded, not straight. Now go make yourself one!
