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.

Alternate Yarn Suggestions
Habu Linen XS-21, 2 threads held together
I recommend you use either 100% Linen (held single or double) or Tsumugi Silk for this garment (held 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.
