I was inspired by the loose, flowy, lace tops from the 70s with this one, but as I worked on the pattern, the loose and flowy idea turned into something more structured and shaped.

Knit from the bottom up, feminine lace and slipped stitch details add flattering lines to a simple top. The top half is fitted and the bottom half is meant to skim more loosely over your curves.

The lines are meant to accentuate your shape, and as always, this is easy to modify for different body types. Instructions are in there to play with bust mods, move the floral band around, and alter the “skirt” section. My testers had a little fun moving things around - you’ll see as they post their photos.
