The Tundra top is an oversized cropped sweater perfect for sweater knits and old T-shirt upcyles. Choose a dropped shoulder short sleeve with a facing, a 3/4 length cuffed sleeve or a fitted long sleeve. The neckline facing can be turned inside or to the outside. The short cropped length is perfect over the Tide dress or peplum. The longer cropped length is a relaxed look over a tank top like the Dandelion. Think “fall layers” or “dancewear”.

Recommended Fabrics: Light to medium weight knits such as cotton Lycra, sweater knits, bamboo, or french terry. Use T-shirts with graphics for an upcycle option. Each type of knit will result in a slightly different final look.
Long sleeves - Fabric with minimum 25% stretch is recommended. “Stiff” or structured knits are not recommended due to the fitted nature of the long sleeve.
Notions: (Optional) 3/8”-1/2” interfacing or 3/8” clear elastic for stabilizing shoulder seams.
