NOTES

• The skirt is worked in one piece from the bottom up. After completing the lace edging, the skirt is shaped with decreases worked in the center of each marked side panel.

• The bodice is worked in two identical lace rectangles. Each rectangle is centered on the shoulder line with one half hanging down in front or in back, and its short selvedges are sewn to the top of the empire band during finishing. The bodice pieces are seamed together for a few inches at center back to raise the back V-neck opening.
