This wrapped jumper has a centuries-long history in Tibet, where it is traditionally worn with added layers of aprons, woolen sashes, and a panel coat (like Folkwear #118 Tibetan Panel Coat). Worn alone or with a blouse (like Folkwear #111 Nepali Blouse), the Chupa is a beautifully contemporary garment.
The Chupa features an asymmetrical wrap front, front and back shaping darts, wide neckband, simple faced armholes, and a unique side extensions that wrap around the back to tie in front. The resulting silhouette is slim, yet the wrapped extensions provide enough leg room to make walking easy. Both the Chupa and Chupa-inspired wrap skirt can be made in the traditional ankle length or below-knee length.
