This beautiful sweater is a great addition to your work or dress-up wardrobe, but why not wear it with jeans as well? The bows are optional, and the sweater is lovely with or without them. Or leave the ribbon out altogether - the eyelets make a lovely trim at the cuffs and neck. there are instructions for shortening or lengthening the waist to better suit your shape.

At 6' tall, I used to have a hard time finding sweaters with long enough sleeves. So I took up knitting to make my own sweaters.
