The designer casts her adventurous eye on this playful interpretation of a sea rogue's garb, using an unusual ribbon yarn that adds dimension and shine. Crocheted in an openwork stitch with an asymmetrical silhouette, the body is worked in one piece from the asymmetrical hemline to the armholes. The piece is then divided so that the fronts and back can be worked separately. The sleeves are crocheted then sewn in place; the lacing up the front ties it all together.
