How to make the Somerset summer boho top

Make two cups increasing at the corners to reduce the view of the new stitches on each row. The cups are made first then joined at the under bust. The bodice is crocheted from the top down.

The border goes all the way around.

Two straps are made and sewn onto the top of the cups.

This top works best when the straps are criss crossed across the back then looped through the bodice edges and can be woven through to fit.IMG_1985 (1)
