A marvellous piece that seems to combine all the very best features of a vest and a shawl. The lace is very pretty in addition to being bold and fresh, but it’s also fairly undemanding. The shaping is very modern-- like a shoulder mantilla instead of a traditional shawl. We love how the very fluid yarn (it’s half milk!) drapes here: it encourages the shawl itself to give the impression of long graceful wings folded lightly at your sides. This garment is perfectly at home worn with jeans or a ball gown, and how often can that be said?
