This particular gallery of photos is not as much about fit as it is about style.

Here are three different women, each with a very different "personal style," each wearing the Saoirse Shawl. Each woman chose how to wear the shawl for the photos herself, in a way that she felt she would actually wear the shawl in real life.

With an unusual garment like this, you can get creative and wear it many ways. Do you tie it at the side? Which side? Slighty off-center? Knot, bow, or pin?

The Saoirse is a very playful garment, and everyone who wore it ended up swinging their hips or their shoulders just to see the ruffles sway and dance.

This is a garment that is truly as much fun to wear as it is to knit. Enjoy!
