Spring swingy top (1 of 3 in a week!)

This week I've been following through on a idea I've had for a year... Remember when I made the green spring ruffle top and a matching dress for Mimi last May? (will post that later)...

I just love that tutorial (found on Sew Mama Sew) and after making a dress that I wore in Italy which looked similar, but was fussy and not fun to make, I thought, "I need to revisit the swingy top with some fun variations... No ruffles, no contrast, longer like a dress..."

So I spent all last weekend working on those ideas. The weather isn't cooperating for me to wear them as spring tops yet, so today I found a way to wear one of them. This red one is made with some fabric Amy sent me from Thailand.... It's been in my stash for a while and I'm so happy to have the perfect use for it.
