Mesh Peplum Cardi-Blouse
Pattern Description from Interweave Online Store: “As you work this cardigan seamlessly from the top down, you can try it on every step of the way for a perfect fit. Interior darts nip in the waist and a flirty peplum adds flair. Feminine yet not frilly, sections of solid stitching mix with sections of mesh for contrast, structural support, modesty, and style.”
