Champagne from BabyCocktails is an elegant top that will take you from late summer right into fall. A soft, rustic yarn in a neutral tone goes with anything - a tank top and flirty skirt in summer, or jeans and a crisp blouse as the days get cold. The diagonal lace creates a bias across your natural curves which is both elongating and camouflaging! Shaping is loose at the hips and fitted above, and the slanted lace accents the deep V. Adjusting for width is easy and as long as attention is paid to row gauge, length can be adjusted as well.
