Gardner Top

Feel like a Hollywood legend in our Gardner Top! This fabulous design utilizes two different fabrics: a stable knit (like ponte) for the blouse and a rigid lace for the yoke. This gives a peek of skin at the neckline while still providing plenty of coverage. Fun fact: we named this top for screen siren Ava Gardner after seeing a photo of her wearing a beautiful lace blouse. This month’s special skill is collars, so make sure to watch the video to learn how to make perfectly polished collars with crisp points and gorgeous structure. You’ll also learn how to make a super-clean collar finish with no facing or binding.
