Before we begin...Materials
(4) 18” fabric squares - Knit fabrics work best, but woven fabrics with a lot of drapewould work with this top too. Suggestedfabrics are jersey, lace, or chion.20” strip of shoulder strap material such as:ribbon, bias tape, or twill tape. 1/4” biastape was used for cover pic.

The 4 Square Top is a loose tting top. The 18”squares should t most sizes, however, feel free toincrease or decrease the square size according toyour preference. An important measurement is thedepth of the “V”. For my measurements, I determinedthe distance to be 7 1/2”. I then added the 1/4” seamallowance, which gave me a total distance of 8”. Thisis the number I use in Step 1 (see page 2). If youprefer a dierent measurement for the V, then usethat number instead of 8” for step 1. If you decide toincrease the V’s length by 2” or more, then cut out 19”squares rather than the suggested 18” squares.Length of V is 7 1/2”
Measurements
~ Use 1/4” seam allowance for knit fabrics. If using a woven, add an additional 1/4” to the seam allowance.~ Red stitching in illustration represents the instructed stitching for that particular instruction. The 4 Square Top tutorial is for personal use only.
