…with my twinset in it! Marilyn—I love the name they chose for it.
You can’t see from the photo, but the camisole is built just like a bra (the back band even closes with hooks and eyes), so the back is very open.
You can see in the first photo that the model is wearing a discreet cami-under-the-cami, presumably to make the openwork peplum a little more modest….
…however, that doesn’t work so well in this shot as you can see the back of the under-cami rising above the back band of the over-cami. My suggestion to anyone who makes this is either to find a camisole that’s cut like a bra or to line the peplum with silk or other slippery fabric…or to just show a little skin.
The cardigan is super easy. Raglan increases down the shoulders then worked straight until wherever you feel like, a few more rows for the sleeves and you’re done. Very easy to adjust the length of the body and the sleeve. The yarn is a mohair-silk blend that is very soft and light and fluffy but the pattern could work with plenty of other yarns/fibers as well.
