Named after a beautiful state park in Virginia’s Northern Neck, Belle Isle is a perfectly girly sleeveless top. Just like the park, with its sun-dappled woodlands and riverside views, it’s just right for warm summer days. The easy-fitting skirt gathers at the back waist before a fitted yoke adorned with Eiffel Tower Eyelet.

The top is worked from the bottom up, and aside from grafting the shoulders, it is entirely seamless. 3 month to 18 month sizes button at the left shoulder for ease of wear. The Eiffel Tower Eyelet instructions are both written and charted. Belle Isle is appropriate for advanced beginners.
