This long sleeved, simple boat top can be made in only one hour –assuming you have a fully functioning sewing machine. The top is comfortable to wear and very functional. It can be worn in a wide variety of settings and complements all kinds of different looks.
The simple boat neck top pattern is really easy to make. I used a linen jersey knit with a very appropriate print of the map of the world. You can use rayon, cotton or a combination of all, soft and drapey is best since the sleeves are kimono style. I love this top since it is very easy to make and even easier to wear with a pair of jeans, culottes or a pencil skirt.
