    Chelsea has a close fitting and textured back which is complemented by the triangular folding drapes at the front. It is a cropped waistcoat which can be worn in different ways for a new look.  Wrapped around the waist, Chelsea is worn as a double layer ensuring complete warmth for the throat, chest and body area, whereas worn with the front panels attached behind the neck, makes a different look entirely, with the softly folding drapes creating a luxurious cowl effect.  Two press studs fasten Chelsea at the back.

    Unfortunately I opted for wool instead of alpaca: it lacks drape and lightness. I still think it is a nice pattern
