Inspired by the distinctive purple satin flying outfit Harriet Quimby designed and wore, this upper body cover-up is just two rectangles and a few well-placed seams. With the sleeves longer than wrist length as well as a hood and scarf which can be worn cowl-like, this versatile piece provides warmth to the entire upper body. Make it in lovely self-striping yarn and let your unique colors fly just like Harriet.
