Casey Drop-Stitch Top PATTERN (Downloadable)


This lightweight top or beach coverup is worked in two pieces, front and back. Each is worked flat from the hem to the shoulders. The sides are then sewn using the invisible garter stitch seam, and the shoulders are finished with the three-needle bind off. It couldn’t be much simpler or more comfortable.

Casey is also available in a kit.
