Shirred Linen Top

A project for myself!
After making my sister a knit shirred dress I wanted to tackle a project for myself. If you know me, that means something quick and easy that I can finish during my kids' afternoon hour and a half. This is what I created - the shirred halter top.
I took some linen, cut a rectangle, hemmed the top and bottom, shirred 18 rows across the top, ironed it, then added a strap and sewed it up the back to make a tube.
An hour and a half! Some of you may think it looks like it would take a lot less time-
but I'm a slow sewer! :)
