PATTERN + FABRIC TIPSBy: Marcy Tilton | | Patterns | Mesh V8975 Cardi
One garment I collect and know I will wear again and again is a summer shrug or cardigan to wear over sleeveless tops, tunics and dresses on hot days. I cannot pinpoint the exact moment in my life when I realized that my days of wearing sleeveless clothes was over, but that is when I started to seek alternatives to sleeveless garments. A sheer shrug or cardigan is a perfect solution. V8975 has simple flattering lines, is fluid and drapey, can be worn open or tied closed, and both the style and the fabric allow the air to move.
