This designer likes to take a classic sweater style, then give it a contemporary twist. In this figure-flattering sweater, she begins with a lush lambswool-mohair yarn in a silhouette that dates back to the Ancient Greeks, complete with tapered sides, rounded neck, fitted sleeves, and cords that wrap the body. She adds an organza ruffle at the hem for a romantic touch.
