Description

A pretty cardigan or vest/sleeveless blouse in ten sizes (XS/S/M/L/1X to 6X), knit in an allover eyelet pattern with scalloped lace hems. Inset body shaping whittles the waist in this otherwise simple, jewel-neck construction; narrow garter bands finish the neck and front openings—perfect for showing off a set of special buttons.

Shown here: size small cardigan in Chebris Lace, color Frappe (gray), and size small vest in Stone Soup Fingering, color River Rock
