After watching a marathon of Jane Austen classics, designer Robyn Chachula was inspired to create an updated version of the day shawl. In our busy world, cardigans fill the same role shawls did in Austen's time: as a garment that you can grab quickly and throw on before running out the door. This cardigan, with its classic lines and feminine curves, is as appropriate for day as it is for evening.
