Inspired by Elizabeth Bennet from Pride and Prejudice.

“Feminine but not too frivolous (like our heroine), this Regency-inspired summer top features a tailored back, low-cut, fitted bust, Empire waist, and ruched neckline. The shoulders are worked flat until a broad bustline is cast on and worked in the round to the hem. The bust is shaped with short rows and light gathers. Four rows of alternating eyelets are woven with ribbon to form the Empire waist. The top is finished with contrast ruching.”
