Inspired by the fashion style of the early 20th century – particularly the group of writers, artists and intellectuals known as The Bloomsbury Group – this long, loose tunic has a sailor collar and is decorated with a simple moss stitch texture pattern. The pattern also gives the option of a neck tie-lacing.

The main body is worked in stocking stitch.
