Beach Treasure is the little sister of Jetsam, a trapezoid-shaped shawl with a generous lace border. Beach Treasure features the same lace border used at the bottom of the shawl, now around your shoulder. This t-shirt is knit seamlessly from the top down.
It has cropped dolman sleeves and a gentle A-Line shaping.

A folded hem gives Beach Treasure a modern look.
Knit with a cotton–linen blend yarn, beach treasure is perfect for a hot summer‘s day on the beach; knit with a silken yarn, it is perfect for a night out.
