A simple, yet versatile, A-line sweater
with “mending” stitches running along the front. Inspired by the age-old tradition of mending, I wanted to create a sweater that mimics the way we treat the rest of our wardrobe: always adding stitches, repurposing, taking care of our favorite garments, and making them truly unique and our own with each wear, tear, and mend.
