Art Nouveau fashion was all about dramatic lines and inspiring patterns. You will find vintage inspiration in Gismonda’s full skirt and nipped-in waist. Drop sleeves create an easy fit around the armhole, while a deep v-neck points the way to the musically-inspired cables, the centerpiece of the act. Gismonda is worked in the round to the armholes, then separated for the Front and Back with sleeve increases worked into the sides.

Please note that this pattern requires the use of charts.
