Bernadette Lace Blouse
This pattern was inspired by the colors and style of the 1970’s. it is perfect layered with a camisole for a casual look or Dressed up with a jacket.
The Blouse is meant to be loose fitting and slide off one shoulder but the boat neck collar can be made smaller for a more conservative look..
I found this to be a great light summer project!
This blouse is worked in two separate identical panels that are seamed together to make a finished garment. The openwork pattern is comprised of three alternating sections consisting of garter stitch, drop stitch, and snowflake lace.
If you prefer a tighter or looser fitting garment, adjust the number of stitches in multiples of 6.
6 stitches = 1 inch
Tapestry needle, removable stitch markers, T-pins for blocking
