Let’s take a look at what’s inside, shall we?
There are some really gorgeous pieces in this book, as you can see above. The Eastlake Sweater, top left, has a beautiful boat neck and features Dolman sleeves. The herringbone stitch gives it a great texture perfect for cooler evenings. The Kinzie Tee, top right, is my favourite garment in the book. I love the shape of the the back and the stitches used. This is a perfect summer top that could be worn over a simple vest top or bikini. The bag, bottom right, has festival chic written all over it. It’s perfectly sized to put all your essentials in and its toggle opening means it is nice and secure too. If you fancy a larger bag for every day use the Spike Tote bag is ideal. The simple stripes of this tote are interrupted by bold, contrasting spike stitches in a geometric pattern for a contemporary look. Finally these stunning fingerless gloves are the ideal accessory. The pattern the stitches create is mesmerizing. I will be making a pair of these for myself!
