Description

Perfect for days when the sun warms the daffodils open, this shell has a fitted upper bodice and gracefully draping body. The bodice is worked initially in the round, then separates into front and back. The body is then picked up from the foundation chain and worked downward in a four-round repeat. Wear it with a camisole in a color that shows off the lacy pattern.
