Happy spring linen top

Yesterday I made this fresh linen top, nice for transitioning from spring to summer in Oregon.  I love the fabric--wish I knew more about it, but it's clearly a linen or linen blend, and I only had about a yard of it from the bins at Goodwill Outlet.  I love getting fabric there--$1.39/lb or less!
I used Simplicity 3530 but made it shorter than their tunic top version, and gave it sort of a baseball tee hem--it wasn't as cute with the straight horizontal line across my hips.
So here it is!
It is also really cute belted!

  6. That is super fun fabric! I would buy that off the bolt from a fabric store, let alone if I found it at Goodwill!!! Great find! I also just made a spring/summer top from a linen blend. It's so light and airy!
