This 1995 reinterpretation of the traditional bed jacket was thoroughly modern for the time (lingerie looks were all the rage) and equally on-trend today. Three botanical-inspired filigree lace patterns play perfectly off each other, with simple reverse stockinette edges finishing the ultra-romantic look. Petite crocheted buttons and buttonholes add to the fineness of the piece. It was knit in Mondial/Skacel Marea 5 Cotton yarn originally; we recommend Garden 5 cotton thread from Universal Yarn. Shot on location at the Sapphire Beach Resort and Marina on St. Thomas.
