Pattern - Messaline by Bristol Ivy, ready to ship


A seamed, drapey, oversized sweater with asymmetrical cable panels on the front. Sample is 46” size, shown on a 38” bust for 8” of positive ease. Please also note that, since I’m tall and have a long torso, length was added on the sample so it would fall where it might on an average person. Length is easily customizable.
