An openwork vest, when worked in a Filet Mesh stitch pattern, has a graceful, feminine drape, as gentle as afternoon summer breezes.

Its sideways construction, coupled with short-row shaping at the sides and along the front, gives the piece its swingy, A-line silhouette.

This design is one of the patterns in the Linen Collection.
