Pattern Description:

A fabulous lightweight tunic, perfect to wear in warm or cool weather.
The feminine styling and smart shaping creates a slimming silhouette. With a deep cross over V-neck highlighting the bust line and a beautiful
lace and bobble stitch pattern skirt perfectly shaped into an A line
that flatters many body types. Knit in 75% yak and 25% bamboo yarn,
the 'Birgitta' has a shine that allows it to be dressed up or down.
The top is worked in pieces from the bottom up then seamed
together. It is beautifully cut and very female.
