Wear this sleeveless summertime shrug two ways! Shaped armholes give a neat fit, while the collar/bottom edge is much fuller on one side than the other. One way, the collar forms a lovely capelet to keep your shoulders warm over a bare dress or top. Worn this way, the length is shorter for a pretty, flattering dressy effect. Flip the garment over and swap armholes, and the result is a longer, slimmer, more casual silhouette with a sweet smaller collar and a fuller and longer lower back and front edge. Either way, this garment can be overlapped in front or pinned in a variety of ways. Skill level is intermediate.
