Sebastian. Do I stand there? I never had a brother;
Nor can there be that deity in my nature,
Of here and every where. I had a sister,
Whom the blind waves and surges have devour’d.
Of charity, what kin are you to me?
What countryman? what name? what parentage?

Viola. Of Messaline: Sebastian was my father;
Such a Sebastian was my brother too,
So went he suited to his watery tomb…

Sebastian. …Were you a woman, as the rest goes even,
I should my tears let fall upon your cheek,
And say ‘Thrice-welcome, drowned Viola!’
--Twelfth Night, Act V, Scene 1

A seamed, drapey, oversized sweater with asymmetrical cable panels on the front. Sample is 46” size, shown on a 38” bust for 8” of positive ease. Please also note that, since I’m tall and have a long torso, length was added on the sample so it would fall where it might on an average person. Length is easily customizable.
