Designer’s Note: “Some of the prettiest garments have the simplest shapes, like this little 1930s-inspired lace blouse knitted in silky crochet cotton. It has a plain stockinette stitch back and a lace stitch front. The design interest and shaping are created by a couple of simple pleats at the front waist, and a tie belt at the back, avoiding any complicated shaping on the lace pattern itself. There is a crochet edging around the fronts and collar, and some pretty vintage glass buttons providing a finishing touch.”
