A fluid easy shape with drawstring detail at the neck and elasticated gathered cuffs. The dress can be belted at hip, waist or not at all.
Some sewing knowledge required.
Both the dress and top can be made in woven or jersey fabrics; choose jerseys for fluidity or crisper cottons and linens for a fresh spring / summer look.

Here is one of my drawstring tops. It is in a super soft, drapey jersey. I do not care much for elastics around my upper arms, so in this version I omitted the elasticated casing. Also, I went for a raw-edge finish for both sleeves and bottom hems and love the result. This top is so comfortable and has already been worn many times over.
