Description

Designer Monica Brown lives atop a hill called Queen Anne and was inspired by Victorian femininity when she was designing this close-fitting blouse. The simple pattern stitch is bordered by half double crochet, and the contrasting bib is crocheted separately and then sewn into the body before being finished with a mandarin-style collar.
