Brilliant Retro

Brilliant Retro – Teva Durham

A close fit and delicate details give this shimmery little cardigan a vintage feel. Ribs placed along the hem, at the center front edges, and down the narrow sleeves help shape the bodice and give it textural interest. A series of tiny snaps closes the front edges and creates a scalloped closure. A metallic thread plied with a soft yarn gives the sweater plenty of drape and a slight cling.
