Now this is a BEAUTIFUL wrap/shrug! And it looks just stunning worn with that lovely maxi dress. Do you have the pattern for that too, lol?? I love the suggestion by LynM below to use a lace fabric - thanks Lyn! I have a gorgeous piece of black lace to use and it's going to go so well with a long dress I have!

44.I guess this could be called a Summer Shrug and its really a great idea to wear with those lovely summery sundresses. Im wondering if it could be made in a lacy or sheer fabric for older ladies like myself who are not so keen to show up our upper arms and yet still love the comfort of those pretty, strappy sundresses for the summer.
