Blue Halston Sheer Crossover Knit Top

Dear Hubby & I are celebrating our 24th Wedding Anniversary.   It doesn't seem like it's been that long.  We were so young when we were married.  But we must be doing something right!

24 Years ago!

Happy Anniversery

He was so thoughtful and bought me a "new" wedding ring, I lost mine last summer in the Gulf of Mexico.  I was heartbroken.  But I LOVE my new ring.

New Wedding Band

I gave him a Ruby Red Grapefruit tree......

Now to sewing:

You know if I make one top, I usually make another and sometimes another and another............!

I had this mesh knit fabric in my bin and thought that another Halston top would be great.

I added flutter style sleeves to this version.  I'm not sure if that was a good idea since it was more tiny hems to sew..........

$12.50 Halston Top

It took me over a week to finish it because I lost steam on sewing all the tiny tiny little hems.  I don't think I will be making another one for a while.

I do like the top,  But when I get hot, the sheer likes to stick to my arms.

Until next time.......................



  1. Happy Anniversary! Blessings! Love the style of this top.

  2. I too love the style of the top and the mesh fabric. What do you (or maybe you don't) wear under it with the see through factor? Happy anniversary. Just celebrated 31 years on 6/15 myself. Yea for us all.

    1. I have a tank top that is under. I attached the tank and the mesh at the neckline, shoulders and armholes. Treating the two as one at the neck and the armholes stabilizes the mesh fabric a little. It also helps the mesh knit from sticking to me. If the wind blows and the mesh opens, I don't worry because of the tank. Thanks for stopping by & Happy belated Anniversary, we're trying to catch up to you!!!!!

  3. Happy Belated Anniversary. You always sew the beautiful tops.
