Product description

A simple vest in Loft adds a light layer of warmth and texture to your fall wardrobe. Worked in moss stitch with delicate welt details at the edges and shoulders, Sauvie features a shallow V-neck and a slightly cropped high-hip length, perfect for pulling over buttondowns. The vest is worked flat from the bottom up with increases to create a gentle angle that results in a small wing of “sleeve” fabric flaring from the shoulder for an interesting silhouette. We knit Sauvie in a versatile pale neutral (Fossil), but it’s equally handsome in a dark shade like Artifact or Pumpernickel.
