From Knitting Daily: Small pleats that flare from a fitted waist, sleeves that gather slightly at the shoulders, and tiny buttons on the collar give this pullover a retro feel. Changing to a larger needle size after completing the waistband adds ease to the bodice, and a zipper hidden in the side seam simplifies getting the pullover on and off. An unmercerized cotton, soft and cool, is the perfect yarn to make this blouse as comfortable to wear as it is pretty to look at.
