Build Your Wardrobe with the Oliver Top
Make a subtle statement with the Oliver top. This sweater has a boat neck and full-length lantern sleeves, for just a little bit of a dramatic fit.
The neckline is finished with a facing and the relaxed silhouette works well with medium-weight knits such as French terry, ponte, sweatshirt fleece, and sweater knits.

Lantern sleeves look best with a bit of structure, so look for medium-weight knits such as French terry, ponte, double knits, and sweater knits. They are all easy to sew, so you can focus on finding the perfect color or print.
