Amaryllis combines classic top-down, seamless construction with a flattering “wear with anything” A-line silhouette, which drapes perfectly with the Serena yarn. The marled effect created by holding 2 strands of Serena in different colors together creates a beautiful, speckled fabric that not only adds visual interest but also provides an opportunity to play with different color combinations to create your own unique look.
