I hear a lot of talk about ‘thinking outside the box’… but for me staying within my comfort zone is, well, comfortable, and I do my best thinking from inside that box! My style is definitely light and lacy, but not overly frilly, and this vest suits me to a T.

The lace design here is actually quite simple, just a repeat of 2 rows, with minimal shaping. There is a hint of vertical striping, which is nicely slimming, despite being worked in horizontal rows.
