This fun and vivid short crochet crop top boasts bold yellow, cream and brown stripes and a cute, 3D flower fringe. It is sized to fit a range of sizes. While the style is exotic, it is sized for a real person, with plenty of room for adjustment in the hand-twisted ties.
A retro-inspired colour scheme of bold gold, strong cadmium yellow, light cream, classic ecru, and warm coffee tones bounce in juxtaposed stripes. Three-dimensional, crocheted blossoms form a dainty fringe around the bottom- they will dance and swing with the wearer’s movements.
The ties, with their teeny tassels, are extra-generous in length, so the wearer may double-bow them for added security.
The top is sized to fit a wearer of size 10-18 Australian/UK, or 4-12 US, or 36-44 European with a bust size 90cm/35”- 110cm/43” and A to a smallish B cup bust.
There is a tie inside the top, which is placed just below the cups (where a bikini would tie). The top can be scrunched along the tie or stretched out flat. The cups can be pulled closer together for the best fit, or each one can be gathered up a little on that cord to allow a little more room in the cup (hence the range of cup size from A-B).
The pictures show the top on my tiny torso model (size 8 Aus-UK/2 US/34 Eu), so the top is a bit large on it. I have had to gather it along that tie a little all round for the photos, and it’s clear that the ties are also a bit long on a torso that size. (They are not double-bowed in the pics.)
Please note: there is a little ‘give’ in the crochet fabric, so when stretched (that is, tied in place) measurements may be a little larger (eg. width and height of cup). I did NOT stretch the fabric when measuring. If you have any questions about size, or would like me to remeasure with stretch, please feel free to contact me.
In the photos for this listing, there is one photo with measurements superimposed on it, showing where and what the measurements are. For this photo, the top was laid flat and not stretched in any way.

The design for the Flower Fringe top is my own- no patterns were harmed in its making. It is unique, and is made from fine, 100 percent cotton, so is machine washable and can be ironed.
I use Australia Post and usually send out parcels within 24 hours, except on weekends and public holidays, when the local post office is closed. Shipping to the US/UK should take about a week to ten days, but unfortunately shipping delays can happen occasionally. If that’s the case, let me know and I can follow up the parcel’s progress from this end and keep buyers informed.
I use tracked shipping wherever possible, so buyers from Australia, the US, UK and most other countries will have a tracking number.
Australians- I’m presently using Express Post within Australia, to help get parcels to their destinations faster and more reliably. This also allows for tracking.
