Bourrasque by Amy Herzog

Bourrasque is an homage to one of my most favorite store-bought tops: A wide-necked A-line number that I wear constantly. It's incredibly comfortable, makes me feel chic the second I slip it on, and is roomy and flowy enough for me to stop thinking about the clothes I'm wearing and just get on with whatever I'm doing.

I feel the same way about the sweater. Worked up in Indigodragonfly Chameleon Sock, an incredible merino-cashmere-silk blend, the fabric is almost unspeakably delicious next to the skin, and has a great fluidity and movement. The A-line shaping makes the sweater float next to my body rather than clinging to it. Bourrasque has found a new home at the top of my closet rotation.

I'm wearing the pullover in a close fit, which pertains largely to the shoulders: In A-line sweaters, the bottom is still plenty roomy (this sample has about 5'' (12.5 cm) of ease in my hips) even in a 'close' fit.

Bourrasque is available in a-line, hourglass, straight, and tapered silhouettes. Please see our page on silhouettes for a full explaination of silhouettes in Customfit.
