The whole top was a replica of a few photos i saw on pinterest which inspired me a lot about what i would love to wear near a beach.I choose the 100 % mercerized cotton (one of my favorite materials) as i want this crocheted crop top to be practical .As we know with the spring and summer come the warm or hot days and cotton is a perfect material to have your body in as your skin breaths and cotton its a natural fiber that washes well and keeps your body temperature cool whilst all those synthetic fibers will make you sweat lot’s , AND WE DON’T WANT THAT, DO WE??? DAHHHH… 🙂
