Short Description: Whakamārie is a drop sleeve top with a center panel comprising of lace and cables on the front side. Waist shaping adds a flattering silhouette. The bottom portion of the top, depending on your measurements, may have negative to no ease, but the bust area allows for 4” of positive ease. Stitches are picking up for the arm bands for I-cord finishing and at the bottom of the garment, for the ribbing. Light and airy, this makes for a lovely summer top.
