A note from the designer:

"We say that knitting is a labour of love. And at no time do I feel this more keenly than when working lace into a garment. The care, the trust, the commitment, the passion — they all must be present, and sustained, for the needles to work their magic and yield a wearable piece of my heart.

Worked seamlessly from the top down, this lightweight, easy-to-wear top is constructed with fitted 3/4 sleeves, relaxed bodice, and flounced hemline. The circular yoke features a delicate lace motif of drooping blossoms, elements of which are also echoed in the sleeves. All edgings are finished with i-cord, for an airy, elegant aesthetic." -Ailbíona McLochlainn
