From Helen's Closet:

The Ashton top is an all-season wardrobe staple that is easy to sew and style! Wear it during cooler months with jeans and a cardigan, or pair it with shorts for summer. The Ashton has bust darts and a signature A-line shape. View A is a hip-length top and view B is a crop top, ideal for pairing with high-waisted pants or skirts. Both views have the option to finish the neck and arms with an all-in-one facing or bias binding. The hem is finished using a beautiful hem facing. The Ashton makes a great stash-buster!

Sewing Level: Advanced Beginner

Recommended Fabrics:
The Ashton can be made in a wide variety of woven fabrics. Try light to medium-weight cotton or linen for a structured look. Silk crêpe de chine, Tencel twill, or rayon challis will result in an Ashton with more drape. Drapier fabrics work better for tucking into skirts or pants, whereas stiffer fabrics showcase Ashton’s A-line shape.
