Description

Mary Beth Temple spent several years as a dealer of antique and vintage fabrics. This camisole was inspired by the colors and shapes of flowing pastel lingerie from the 1930s and is stitched in a loose gauge to create drapey fabric so it can fall gently and comfortably over the body. The bamboo yarn is cool to wear on even the hottest summer days, and the feminine style will transition elegantly into a casual evening.
