Think pinpoint fit, arabesque details and easy knitting. Sahara is just as elegant to make as it is to wear: worked from the top down in one piece so that you can try it on as you go: it requires no seaming to create the fitted set-in sleeves, precision-tailored waist line or the gently curved, bottom-and-tummy-conforming hem. Our style and fit tips appear throughout the pattern, guiding you to a custom fit. And then we offer 3 different sleeve options – from sleeveless to short-sleeve to dramatic long-sleeves so that you can create the perfect garment for your lifestyle, climate and mood.
To complement an impeccable fit, we feature a diamond texture border for the embellished neckline, cuffs and hem. Work up Sahara in any drapey worsted weight yarn, or use our rich featured silks with beaded and sequined accent yarns to create a sleek tunic with sumptuously-encrusted details.
Wear with a cami underneath or dare to wear nothing underneath at all. Whichever way you wear it, you will be a smart and stylish damsel who used her low-impact efforts to create a super high-impact and sparktacular result.
