The bodice of a typical old Dutch peasant costume was shaped close to the body, bust and waist, and usually worn with wide skirts, black stockings and wooden shoes. This was my inspiration for the Milk Maid Top, made of soft grey Bo-Rage mill-spun wool and alpaca yarn.

The distinctive shape of this bodice is achieved through stitch reduction in the front and back panels. The shape of the shoulders and sleeves is created by means of short rows.
