The Shade is a cropped shrug with short, wide sleeves and sleeve cuffs. Pair it with any sleeveless garment to add a touch of magic. It works best with lightweight woven fabrics with a little structure like linen or cotton lawn. Easy and quick to make, this is a great palette cleanser or weekend project. The ultra-cropped length makes it a perfect candidate for stash-busting!
It features an optional facing for a couture finish, with instructions for two bias neckline finishes. French seams make the insides beautiful and durable. These options make it appropriate for both beginner and intermediate stitchers.
The attached Atlas guides you through drafting a custom long-sleeve, substituting knit fabrics, and more!
Uses light-weight woven fabrics like linen, chambray, apparel cotton, quilting cotton (options for knit modifications included)
