The average post-apocalyptic girl so often seems to dress without considering the realities of her environment. This pattern is an attempt to provide clothing appropriate to the arid wasteland without, of course, obscuring anyone’s scantily-cladness. This cropped burnoose is worked in a lightweight yarn at a loose gauge for coolness, with a deep hood to protect against glare and sand storms, and a long tail to keep it elegantly secure.
The cuffs match the front bands. The body length is easily customized.
