Let yourself be swept away by posh elegance! Inspired by the wild creativity of Erté’s (Romain de Tirtoff) illustrations for Harper’s Bazar, this top invokes his flowing silhouettes and intricate beading. À la Erté combines the one size fits all ease of a cape with the functionality of real sleeves into an easy to wear pullover that is anything but ordinary. The bead work is surprisingly easy to do, and the pattern contains full instructions and helpful tips. The wonderfully luxe yarn, elaborate beading, and daring neckline make this a real show stopper. À la Erté is the perfect piece to take any outfit from day into glamorous evening.
