Description

This light top in 12 sizes (XXS to L and 1X to 7X) has sizzling lace details and appealing options to customize a piece that will cross over several seasons of the year. The body falls from the underarm in a forgiving A-line shape with lace insets, with slim (but stretchy) lace sleeves in two lengths—or go sleeveless. Worked in one piece from hem to underarm, then divided for tailored armhole and shoulder shaping, with sleeves knit flat.
