WINDLASS

A summery sleeveless top as seen in Pom Pom Quarterly Issue 17.

From Pom Pom-

Windlass is essentially a sleeveless version of the iconic fisherman’s gansey. With side vents, eyelet motifs, and knit in a light organic cotton, it’s ideal for summer wear. We love how the brass buttons and rope cables give it an overall nautical feel. Play it down with shorts for an afternoon boat trip, or dress it up with a skirt, as we have here- either way you’ll look and feel as cool as a cucumber.
