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.
