Frou Frou is a relaxed lightweight top featuring a delicate keyhole button closure and short-sleeved dolman shape. Designed with a sweet eyelet ruffled hemline slightly longer at back, it is perfect for school and play as well as for an extreme spin, twirl-in experience.

  • Frou Frou Tee is a circular yoke construction with shoulder shaping lines, worked in one piece from the top down. Beginning at the neckline, yoke is worked back and forth in rows to form a keyhole slit, incorporating shoulder shaping and short row shaping at neck. Then yoke is worked in the round maintaining shoulder shaping to armhole opening. The Front and Back are divided at the armholes and both pieces are worked individually to the base of the armholes. Then the pieces are joined again and the body is worked in one piece to the bottom edge.
