Inspired by Victorian era underskirts, Agnes is worked from the top-down, starting with a waistband and placket opening that are knitted flat then joined and worked in the round to the bottom of the petal-like trim.
Cables border a ribbed section at the front, and layers of flirty, ruffles at the back to give a bustle effect.
Designed to be worn with the matching Violet corset, (pictured), Agnes looks fabulous dressed up or down, especially if you have a wiggle in your walk!
