This top was super easy to make and really quick. It is definitely something for a beginner to try. Just start by cutting out the basic shape (shown below) from a folded piece of fabric. That way you have your front and back cut out at the same time. Make the front neck line a little bit lower than the back if you like.
Just attach the two pieces together, right sides facing each other and then hem the edges left over. And you're done! :)
