Flight of Fancy


Light as a summer breeze, diaphanous as a bride’s veil, this Flight of Fancy plays with shape and lace stitches for a shawl with movement and grace.

Its trapezoidal form allows for many interpretations. Drape it as a scarf, pin it for a capelet, fold it in half lengthwise and sew along each side to wear it as a shrug.

Or simply throw it over one shoulder for that extra touch of elegance
