Cape is one of many cotton garments found in the book, Echoes by Kim Hargreaves. This book has quickly become a quintessential summer pattern book with many timeless designs with a relaxed fit and excellent shaping. Cape is a button down tee with striped accents at the waist and sleeve hem. The top is made in pieces that are seamed after blocking to add structure to the garment. You will love the fingering weight cotton yarn and the coolness this garment will provide you on a hot, beachfront day.

Please add your button selection to "Notes" at checkout, or if you prefer, we can select them for you, too. PRE-ORDER now available in all colors.
