影 | KAGE Japanese (Romanji) for (n) shadow; silhouette.

The silhouette of the body is glimpsed within the soft shadow of this wonderfully light folded form.

An elegant short sleeve top displaying the beautiful sheen of 100% Linen yarn; the clever origami-style construction provides a deep V neck, paired with slim waist detailing and dolman sleeve shaping to above the elbow.

Five Sizes provided in the pattern.
Note: this is a loose style of top that is designed to be layered over other garments and inherently over-sized.

Skill Level

I recommend you use either 100% Linen (held single or double). The design displays the exquisite sheen and drape of linen. Also, the rib waist band is not intended to be ‘stretchy’ or tight - it provides an elegant and gentle drape about the hip.

If you substitute the yarn, I suggest you choose one that has similar properties to linen such as silk, cotton, linen and/or combinations of these.
