Pattern Description from Vogue Knitting, Spring/Summer 2010: “This slip of a sundress, in Plymouth Yarn’s ‘Somerset,’ is a breeze to knit in a simple lace chevron pattern that’s touched with ribbing at the top edge and straps. Yanok Rich finished the look by bordering the hemline with reverse single crochet and threading an I-cord tie through eyelets at the waistline.”

“Very close-fitting lace pattern sleeveless dress with I-cord waist ties.”
