Galaxia Lace Top
In this pattern, I have combined my love for knitting top-down garments with my love for lace incorporated into garments. It is a relatively fast knit with a lace pattern that is simple, yet beautiful. The front is lace and the back is stockinette. However, the lace does not cover the entire width of front section. The sides are in stockinette and incorporate waist shaping. This gives a great visual slimming effect! A tool that I learned from a movie costume designer! :)
According to the Urban Dictionary of Slang: Galaxia is a name or nickname given to a graceful woman with both a tender and a villainous streak.
Galaxia is not as much a name as it is a statement; a title given to women as brilliant as a galaxy and hotter than all its stars combined. Wthout exception, none of their boyfriends deserve them.
“Dude, keep dreaming. That girl? She’s a genuine Galaxia.”
