A fitted version of the sweater vest – still classic and comfortable – this slim and shapely silhouette extends mid-hip in length with an extra deep v-neckline. Mildred looks great over long sleeves, short sleeves, or even no sleeves, for year-round wear-ability. Horizontal stripes, narrow below the waist and wider above, add visual interest and fun! This design is worked bottom-up and in the round with 1x1 rib trimming.
