Nothing is more effective for flattering and
shaping every body type than a surplice wrap.
The diagonal lines from neck to buckle and
from buckle to hem elongate the silhouette,
while soft pleats offer definition at the waist as
well as a bit of cover-up. The waist and sleeve
cuffs are worked in linen stitch, which provides
welcome stability in this otherwise fluid blouse.
The artistically offset diagonal lower front
edges create sophistication; three-quarterlength
sleeves offer versatile comfort. The
extraordinarily fine drape of the bamboo yarn
is crucial for the success of this design.
