’Gypsophila’ has multiple options you can choose from:
• work it as a tunic or a dress;
• straight or A-line silhouette;
• with/without elongated back.
The pattern is worked top-down in the round, so you can easily try it on and decide on the length in the process. You start with a circular yoke with all-over lace, then continue in stockinette!) and finish with lace trim at the bottom.
I recommend minimal positive ease (2-5cm/1-2”) at the bust. You can ensure the right fit by working bust darts (provided for sizes 3-10).
