It’s certainly summer in these parts. Hot, muggy days and afternoon thunderstorms almost have us thinking it’s July. Or worse, August. But alas, we are thankful for the reprieve from spring snowstorms and freezing cold nights. We’re thankful because summer means bike rides, drinks on rooftop patios, and most importantly, outdoor live music. Enter the Summer Concert Tee by Dixie DIY. This pattern is killer.

This knit top is flowy and oversized, making it a flattering fit on all body types. The exaggerated high-low hem reaches just below the navel in front and dips below the seat in the back. The drop shoulders are finished with elbow length sleeve bands.

So, let's get to the good part. Just how do you wear a top like this? Well, this summer, we’re jumping on the denim cutoffs train and we’re not getting off anytime soon. The Summer Concert Tee looks great with a pair of cutoffs and wayfarer sunglasses. Simplicity is where it's at. We paired the look with some strappy leather wedges. Other shoe options that we’ll be wearing? Flat leather strappy sandals and Toms. Because, comfort. Blog | Dixie DIY's Summer Concert Tee Sewing Pattern| How We Wear It: The Summer Concert Tee

Yes, the Summer Concert Tee is a great top for dancing, hula hooping, and, in general, causing a ruckus. But it doesn’t have to be worn only while watching outdoor live music. Not at all, in fact. We dressed up the drapey top with a pair of skinny jeans, a long necklace, and black peep toe pumps. Grab a fun clutch and you’re ready for a hot date, night out with friends, appointment.
