Pattern Description:

Designed by Marly Bird.

A fabulous lightweight tunic, perfect to wear in warm or cool weather. The feminine styling and smart shaping create a slimming silhouette. With a deep cross over a V-neck highlighting the bust line and a beautiful lace and bobble stitch pattern skirt, it's perfectly shaped into an A line that flatters all body types. Knit in Bijou Spun "Lhasa Wilderness" (75% yak and 25% bamboo yarn), the "Birgitta" has a glossy 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.
