A "look at me" sweater that's just as ready for 'Zoom business casual' as a cozy evening on the couch, Local Meadow is deliciously soft, oversized, and graceful.

​I particularly love this sweater for lunch dates and bookstore trips, or any time you want to feel like the "most YOU" version of yourself.

Lightweight fabric with just enough structure, a relaxed fit with dropped shoulders, and a shaped cap to reduce fabric in the underarm - this sweater will be the most comfortable, wearable, sweater in your wardrobe.

This sweater is size-inclusive and graded to fit full busts up to 64.25 inches / 161 cm.
