Lonicera is a versatile wrap/vest. Worked in bamboo or cotton is makes a breezy summer accessory. Worked in wool or alpaca it moves just as easily into fall and winter. In an elegant silk Lonicera would look equally well for an evening out as it would over a pair of jeans for a casual lunch with friends.
Lonicera can also be worn in several ways - with the fronts left casually open. . .
or tied together at the waist. . .
draped over the shoulder. .
or wrapped around the front. . .
and tied at the back.
