Beautifully constructed (interior seams are rolled knit without any machine stitching). Very feminine and durable cardigan sweater. Can be worn alone with nothing underneath all buttoned up or over other shirts, sweaters, or blouses as an open cardigan.
Original Deans of Scotland made for Trimingham's Bermuda. Beautiful heathery light cocoa and cream knit. Great color. Good Luck!
