The resurgence of layers and 1960s mod dresses inspired this designer to create this pullover as a fusion of a kimono and Empire-waist baby-doll top. The kimono wrap top of the garment is constructed in one piece and seamed at the sides. The lacy bottom is added by crocheting in the round. A belt or ribbon provides the finishing touch and a bit of structure.
