Inspired by a lace pattern from a bedspread made in the late nineteenth century, and by modern slip dresses from the New York runways, Mari Lynn Patrick has created this lovely knitted dress. Lace panels worked horizontally form the hem edging and waistband and accentuated decreases form delicate points on the tapered skirt. For stability and to resist stretching, the bodice is knitted side-to-side. Tiny shell buttons and slender I-cord straps add to the vintage charm.
Finished Size: 34 1/4 (38 1/4)" (87 [97] cm) bust circumference; horizontal lace panel at lower edge of bodice measures 31 (35 1/4)" (78.5 [89.5] cm) circumference. Dress shown measures 34 1/4" (87 cm) at bust.
