Pattern description from Lace Style: “Michelle Rose Orne is an expert in designing sophisticated feminine knitwear. In this delicate corset top, she chose a silk yarn for the body and a very fine, crisp cotton yarn for the delicate lace edging at the neck and hem. The rounded lower front edge is shaped by casting on stitches at each side. A series of darts on the bodice front as well as narrow ribs with lots of tiny buttons on the bodice back give the top a snug fit. A drawstring holds the scoop neck in place.”
