Summer Leaves

Had enough of cleavage and midriff-baring fashion? This summer top shows off a bit of skin in the back. And if you still like to show a little cleavage and midriff, it turns out this top is actually reversible, although pretty daring if the leaves are worn in front without a camisole! The construction is essentially like making a cardigan with no sleeves. But instead of the typical closure, knit leaves are sewn over the middle of the back (or front) to close the sweater. This creates daring little open areas in between. Perfect for warm summer days.

Difficulty: Intermediate
