Inspired by vintage fashions and intricate patterns of repeating lace, the Summer Days Top is a visual lace experience. This repeating pattern cascades in a display of delicate romance.

The body of the garment is a lace pattern consisting of a multiple of six stitches plus one. This pattern has a two-row repeat. As the number of stitches between the two rows is different, the pattern follows the stitch count on the even rows. For shaping the shoulders and sleeves, decreases are worked within the two-row repeat, decreasing six stitches per row.
