Pattern Description:

Simple, yet elegant, this shell is a great layering piece. Wear it alone as a tank, or over another shirt for added warmth. The Holly Shell will become one of your wardrobe staples.

Pair it with a skirt and blazer to dress up at the office or wear it with jeans and a t-shirt to dress it down for a day of shopping.
