Crochet Summer Reversible Tee Pattern

Spread the love

About 2 years ago, I designed this cute crochet top! You see, I’ve always loved garments that can be styled in different ways! This top is no exemption as it is reversible. You actually do not need any major adjustment to make this reversible!. All that is needed is to wear the tee with front or the back interchangably.

Have you noticed the peplum/flare on this tee? It’s another thing I love about this tee.
