Pattern description from Vogue Knitting, Holiday 2007:
“Lissom lines inform two acts by Shirley Paden. The stockinette-based racerback-style tank/A-line skirt combo is worked in a triangle-lace pattern with Lion Brand Yarn’s ‘Lion Cashmere Blend.’ Crochet trims the edges; a twisted-cord drawstring made of ‘rattail’ ribbon cord dangles from the top.”
