Product description

“Wearable – this is always my biggest consideration when I set out on a new design. After swatching with Loft at a looser gauge I knew there was a winner in the making. A comfortable, wearable, oh so squishy winner. This design is truly seamless, apart from one small seam at the back of the neck. The collar is worked concurrently with the body, giving the garment almost no finishing. A slight flare to the body and straight sleeves lend themselves toward making this a ‘live in it’ essential that I hope you’ll love.” – Hannah Fettig
