Mirage Shell

The Project

Understated elegance for summer: sheer panels in Silk Cloud flutter at the hem, contrasting with A-line shaping in a modern shell. Optional short sleeves make it easy to fit Mirage into any wardrobe.

Mirage is knit flat from the bottom up. The sheer panel is knit using 1 strand of Silk Cloud, then joined to the body, which is knit using 1 strand of Fern. Mirage features two armhole options: a sleeveless shell or short sleeves for the tee.
