“The easy fit of this garment has flattering shaping in two areas; the curved hemline giving the back more coverage and the subtle widening of the body so the cable pattern flows outwards from waist to shoulders. This cocoon top is one that was high on my to-design list for very selfish reasons. Its clean, modern shape and minimal cable detail fits my style perfectly. I love working with reverse stockinette for a more textural feel and the exposed seams give it an additional interesting detail.” – Julie Hoover
