A study in geometric contrasts, this design uses deeply vented side gores to break open an angular pullover striated with Quaker ridging. Cables accentuate the unusual construction. Fitted with gentle ease through the bust and shoulders, Arabella is designed for beauty and comfort. The stockinette gores drape, fold and swing to create alluring movement in the tent silhouette, and the generous crew neck and bracelet-length sleeves provide further feminine detailing. Seamed construction adds stability and professional crispness to this eye-catching garment.

Garment is worked flat in pieces and sewn together. The neckband is picked up and worked after seaming.
