A delicate top with relaxed shaping for ample drape at the body. The front and back are kept minimal and simple while patterned sleeves and a playful hem take centre stage in this design with their understated elegance.
Lacy eyelets on shoulders, sleeves and the garment’s sides flow into a flattering, curved hem, while playful textured details finish off the short sleeves and in combination with the centred increases produce a slightly puffed shape right above the cuff.
The yoke construction starts sideways at the beginning, to be later worked with raglan increases in combination with the eyelet pattern on the shoulders, while a similar stitch pattern is used to shape the waist increases on the body.
The neckline is kept raw to directly grow out of the stitch pattern on the shoulders, while it is left to roll slightly at the centre of front and back.
All techniques and methods are either explained in the pattern itself with attached photo tutorials, or links are provided that point to web-tutorials.
