Inamorata: A woman with whom one is in love.

With its flowing lines and sweet empire waist shaping, Inamorata invokes romance and feminine appeal.

Custom-fit strap shaping provides modesty and comfort in this classic knit that fits and flatters.

This project is worked with two strands of yarn held together throughout, and the soft hand painted linen/silk blend adds lovely drape and subtle color. The bodice is knit back and forth in rows from the upper edge to the under-bust, then the lower body is worked in the round to the lower edge. The bind off is worked in a simple lace garter stitch sawtooth pattern. Stitches for the straps are then picked up along the upper edge, and the straps are worked to fit. A row of single crochet trims the bodice edges, and the button loops for dainty shell buttons are worked with a simple crochet loop.
