Product details

I've always loved a 1960s era portrait neckline, and as soon as I saw the wall of Lavold Silky Wool colors at my LYS I had the urge to create something Joan Harris might have worn on Mad Men. Classic styling and an amazing color.

The shell is worked from the top down, with a flattering front cable and lace detail that flatters a bust, creates a little waist, and hides a tummy - all at the same time! On the back, a sweet collar and some vintage buttons add to the retro vibe. I paired this with a pencil skirt in the photos, as I think this is perfect office wear, but I've also put it on with jeans and flats - more Audrey Hepburn than Joan Harris.

There are instructions to modify things for your body. If using a different yarn choice I suggest a lightweight fiber without a lot of weight. Sample is in Elsebeth Lavold Silky Wool. A suggested substitute is shown below.
