The beauty of the silk/seacell blend in this yarn, combined with the loose, draped gauge, make this garment a winning wardrobe piece.

With its lace band at the high hip and st st body, unshaped for even better drape, this garment retains shape with a single-crochet edging and a wrapped finishing to enhance the feminine easy-wear feeling required for a fantastic summer day!

Make yours in a blend yarn with a high content of plant or silk fiber, and remember you can shorten/lengthen the body as much as you’d like for a true custom shape.

  • This garment is constructed in 2 sections: a lace band, from where the body is picked up and worked one piece to the armholes, then separated to the neckline.
  • The armholes are unshaped to retain the loose drape of the garment.
  • This is a positive ease garment not supposed to fit tightly in any area except the high hip where the ties are supposed to close.
