Influenced by my love of moss-stitch (or to our North American friends: seed-stitch). This graceful design is showcased by a faltering peplum skirt that delicately and seamlessly falls from a box shaped bodice. A delicious jacket; stylish and warm. The garment is designed with negative ease for a flattering fit. No shaping for a feminine silhouette.
To fasten FRILL ME WITH LOVE together you have the choice of small buttons or button-free (fasten with one of our hand-made shawl-pin.
The main body section is moss stitch (for non-knitters – this is a basket-weave/mesh effect) and the peplum skirt and sleeves can either be in smooth (stocking stitch) or ridged (garter stitch). The cuffs and skirt are finished off with a picot edge; graceful small defining points.
