The Great Garment Giveaway (Aug 8)

First of all, how it is August 8 already?! Goodness, the summer is flying by!

It’s hard to believe this is our sixth garment in The Great Garment Giveaway.

Everyone who has adopted a retired sample garment so far has been very excited. Donna, who won last week, sent us an email gushing about the fine craftsmanship and how well it fits her.

We’re excited these sweaters are finding good homes! I think you’ll agree that this week’s sweater is a real beauty.


Make a statement! Blend this classic stitch with a modern outfit — match this tunic with flats and leggings and you’ll be set for your outdoor parties this summer.

Knit up in Mirasol’s Asikita (85% Pima Cotton 15% Baby Alpaca), it has a nice drape and an airy openwork pattern.

IMG_20140807_162940Measurements: 26 1/4″ shoulder to hem, 15 1/2″ along bottom edging, 18 1/2″ shoulder to shoulder.

The Big Question: We think leggins and flats, but how would YOU wear this pretty top?

    This is a most lovely top; I would pair it with a wrap skirt in a micro fibre and leggings, and have a tank top to match the leggins and skirt under the sweater.
