Inspired by Mr. Darcy's estate, Pemberley, near the fictional town of Lambton, this top references the lovely empire-waisted gowns of the Regency period. It has a square neckline and a lightly fitted bodice. Shirred panels knitted of laceweight yarn at the neckline, cuffs, and waist create a soft, delicate look. The sleeves are slightly puffed with a small ruffle at the cuff. The body section has a slip-stitch pattern to add texture and to create flattering vertical lines. The top is a seamless top-down raglan making it quick and easy to knit with no seams to finish. Short-rows are added to the tops of the sleeves for a better fit and added fullness.
