The old lady’s beautiful young ward, drifts among the lush flowers. She is cool and elegant in a lacy top. The lace and delicate beading embellish the simple fitted shape while also providing a lightness that keeps her cool even when the private detective comes to question her about her alibi.

Construction Notes

This sleeveless top is knitted from the bottom up in the round. At the underarms, the back and front are then worked separately. There is lace edging at the hem, which provides a scalloped border and repeated at the midriff for a pretty accent. The remainder is done in stockinette stitch with waist shaping for a graceful look. The neckline and armholes are trimmed with a delicate picot edging and optional beads cam be added on the midriff lace panel, and neck and armhole edges.
Wear it as a vest in cooler seasons, and a sleeveless top in summer.
