Softness meets sophistication in this asymmetrically ruffled shell with angled armholes that reveal shapely shoulders. Worked in a tape yarn that combines both matte and shiny threads, this mostly-stockinette-stitch blouse is accented with a bit of openwork rib at the lower edge and a generous garter-stitch ruffle (worked separately and shaped with short-rows). This versatile top can run the gamut between sporty and classic—pair it with a pencil skirt for the executive office, then with a pair of distressed jeans for a night at the movies. (Interweave)
