Sometimes, the beauty of crochet lies not in where the stitches are, but in where they aren’t. This lacy openwork top demonstrates that principle. A delicate lacelike fabric makes up the top and the fluttery short sleeves. Good fit is ensured by the ribbed bottom band. The simple pattern works up very quickly. Make it in cotton for a flirty summer look, in wool to layer over a tee with jeans in the fall, or in a shiny metallic for a special occasion. However you make it, you’re going to love it. This PDF crochet pattern is designed to fit 18 inch dolls such as American Girl®.

I'm so glad this one comes with photos. I'm still in the process of making the top and have a terrible time understanding instructions but it's finally clicking and I am going to love this little top.
I had the pleasure of crocheting this new top from Sweet Pea Fashions before publication. It fits the dolls well. Use a shiny sparkly yarn for parties, a fuzzy yarn for warmth or a smooth yarn and let the t-shirt or cami color show through. Turn it around as a cardi and show off your picture t-shirt.
