Adding Embellishments (optional)
For those looking to add a personal touch, consider embellishing your crochet summer top. You can sew on beads, attach buttons, or even add some delicate embroidery to enhance its appearance.
As you near completion, neatly weave in all the ends for a polished look. Blocking the finished top will ensure it maintains its shape and drape.
