Description
This New York designer adds a dressmaker's styling to most of her handknits. In this elegant ensemble, she's combined a sleek, fitted jacket with a short tapered skirt and added a bit of fluff at the collar and cuffs. The jacket is worked in an allover stitch pattern that has a subtle diagonal appearance. The total effect is slimming, sophisticated, and sensational.
