  • So its really two patterns in one!!

Back and Front Pieces are crocheted with vertically oriented rows, worked from cuff to cuff. Lace inserts are made separately. Hand sewing joins side seams, then crochet is used to edge and seam all these pieces together to assemble the Bodice. Ribbings and Neckline edging is added last, the garment is blocked, then buttons attached.
Swatching for Gauge and Blocking are essential for a good finished garment.

Pattern includes numerous photos to guide your make, written instructions and a stitch chart for the lace insert and ribbing stitches.
