Brighton Short

$8.00

This is a digital knitting pattern, not a finished garment.

Brighton is a versatile tank and short set. Named after Brighton Beach, it can be worn as a cover-up at your favorite swimming spot, or for a stroll down to boardwalk. The delicate lace details and lingerie inspired silhouettes mean it’s perfect for lounging at home, enjoying your favorite snacks, luxuriating with a scented candle, and enjoying a good book or your favorite trashy TV show. Ditch the shorts, and pair the tank with your favorite jeans or linen pants and you’re ready for a leisurely, outdoor brunch.

The Brighton Short has a folded drawstring waistband, is worked top down, and sits at the natural waist. The tap short inspired design fits loosely around the leg and features a sporty side vent at the hem.
