Nursery Rhymes Square Neck Top

I loved this whimsical fabric when I saw it on the bolt (Alexander Henry's Nursery Rhymes), but didn't really know how to use it.  I finally decided it was wearable in small doses.

The top is an adaptation of this pattern by DMK Easywear.

I used a jersey loop for a closure on this top.  Previously when making this pattern, I did a cotton loop and it never fastened easily.  The jersey stretches just perfectly.

We're having an extended hot spell, so the top hasn't made it out of the closet yet.
