Backwards Upside-Down-Sweater

You sometimes get sick of your wardrobe. This sweater can be worn in four different ways, and will hopefully last longer before you forget all about it;) It is airy  and nice for Summer, and you´ll show off your tanned shoulders in it. If you wan more hold, you can sew a button at the top of the v-neck, to make sure it´s held more in place. We love it just the way it is!
