Nostalgia is a two color summer tube top with a vintage feminine touch. It is worked mainly in stockinette stitch with 1x1 ribbed bands and garter stitch straps. The top features a rather unusual construction: the body of the garment is a parallelogram that is turned into a tube with just one seam.
