This designer often finds the simplest combinations are the most elegant. Here, tussah silk melds beautifully with a simple mesh and Solomon's Knot pattern in a swingy lightweight vest. Cap sleeves and a drawstring waist shape the simple garment. Comfortable and quick to crochet, this top looks more intricate than it really is.
