The Olden top is a simple summer top, worked bottom up with double thread on thick needles. It is first worked in the round on a circular needle, where after it is divided into front and back at the armhole openings. You then finish both pieces separately. The Olden top has a V-neckline both at front and back, but slightly deeper at the back piece. The top has a short and wide fit. Despite the thick yarn, the top feels light against the skin and has a lovely drape. You can adjust the strap length to your own body measurements before sewing the pieces together.
A summer top with straps will always seam looser and wider as the given measurements. Choose a size that is 0- 5 cm slimmer (negative ease) than your bust measurement. The stated measurement on the front page is for the finished garment.
