Pattern Description from Vogue Knitting, Spring/Summer 2009: “A buttery lace dress by Susan Katz - knit in the round and shaped by varing the number of stitches in the feather-and-fan repeats - carries the hint of cap sleeves and a simple crochet edging around the armholes and neckline. It’s knit in ‘Silk Purse’ from Alchemy yarns of Transformation.”

“Close-fitting lace dress worked in one piece to the armholes, decreasing the stitch repeats of the feather and fan pattern to shape the garment.”
