The path to romance may be fraught with ups and downs, but this cunning boudoir set is sure to smooth any bumps along the way. Sweet, playful and approachable: a winning combination in love and knitwear.

Worked in the round from the bottom-up, the chemise features a scoop neck and set-in sleeve armholes trimmed with a lace cap. Bust gussets allow an attractive fit above an empire waist cinched with ribbon and a lace skirt that falls to the hips. The bloomers are worked bottom-up in the round, with rear gussets to allow a comfortable and flattering fit for the back and a ribbed waistband cinched with ribbon for a secure fit.
