From Knitty.com: I would never consider myself a girly girl, but I love romantic and feminine clothing and designs. Jennie Atkinson and Vera Wang are two of my favorite designer heroes, I adore clothes from Anthropologie (although I can never actually afford anything from there) and can’t resist anything with lace, ribbon, embroidery, or dainty bead/button details.
As a medical student, there are few opportunities for me to wear such clothing, since if I’m not in hospital scrubs, I’m adhering to the business casual dress code. I designed this sweater as a more feminine alternative to collared, button-up shirts that can be worn under a white coat or business suit jacket. In this sweater I have included some of my favorite style elements: a swooping neckline, bell sleeves, empire waist, and simple scallop lace. Made to fit closely, this sweater flatters a woman’s curves and has a graceful silhouette. Finishing touches were done in crochet, such as the waist and elbow ties, the belt loops, and the shrimp-stitch edging that borders the neckline. The ties and belt loops are optional, in case you prefer the sweater without the ‘girly’ details.
