Essential Cardigan

Every female needs one of these set-in sleeved cardis. Ladies need them at the recommended ease (6" larger than your bust) to wear with blouses and pearls-- the jewel neck sets them off perfectly, and off you go to the library. Younger women might wear one with 2" - 4" of ease, to wear with tees to school. If you're a rock star going to a family gathering, you might need one a little tighter over a tube top, perhaps with a few extra buttons left undone. If you're a Bond Girl at heart, knit your bust size and wear over some underwear you bought in Venice. You'll get everything you want, including Daniel Craig.
