Dubonnet pairs a vintage vibe with a cardigan feminine enough for a sundress, but still casual and simple enough to wear with jeans and a tee shirt. Featuring three quarter sleeves, a touch of lace and shorter, hip length, deep ribbing, delicate lipstick pockets that add a touch of color while accenting the flattering, wearable silhouette. A touch of lace breaks up the body and is centered on the low waist below the bust, where it flatters most body types. Seamless construction means that this sweater is easily modified for length, width or lace panel placement.
