Notes

The fit is spot on, so that makes me very happy. Keeping the lace pattern while decreasing and increasing was a pain. Then picking up for the arm holes was difficult. It’s hard to pick up, especially next to YO’s in lace, and have a stable under arm. I ended up going back and making fake knit stitches to fill in the holes. If I make this again I would make sure I kept 4 stitches on each edge of the bodice so I have a stable material to pick up and support a sleeve.

Modifications:
3/4 sleeves, only 3 buttons, used seed stitch instead of reverse stockinette.
