Trapeze Tank and Broad Cardigan

BY HELEN HAMANN

Here is a twin set that is at once both classic and daringly modern. Its flattering, trapezoidal tank is constructed in one piece, without any seams. It’s narrow at the shoulders, form-fitting at the breasts, loosely flowing over the hips, and delightfully asymmetrical at the hem. It can be worn alone or as a fabulous ensemble, topped with an oversized broad cardigan, which is very short, but wide, so that it drapes beautifully down the shoulders. Both tank and cardigan are included in the same pattern.
