Designed for Purl Soho, Julie Hoover's Copley dress is flattering, fresh, and absolutely beautiful! It is knit in super simple pieces that you seam together at the end, giving the finished garment the perfect amount of structure. Half sleeves and a graceful neckline add style, while gentle waist shaping ensures you're not wearing a sack. The pockets are a beautiful (and useful!) detail, but if you're looking for some uninterrupted knitting, they're optional. Our Blackbird Linen transforms this simple silhouette into something truly exquisite. One hundred percent French linen, this yarn has an earthy character and linen’s characteristic cool touch that wicks away moisture, so you stay comfortable through spring, summer, and fall. And it gets softer with every wash, so the more you wear your Copley, the more your love for it will grow!
