Elegant lace meets a trendy silhouette in this casual, seamless vest. The lace’s distinctive elongated pattern creates a horizontal pattern around the skirt and vertical pattern at the body.

A rectangle is worked first for the skirt then turned on its side and stitches are picked up across the center top. Body is worked flat from the bottom up, and joined at shoulders. Front band is worked at the same time as the fronts and once shoulders are joined, each band is continued and joined at back neck.

Sample is to fit 38”; model is 32”

42.75 (46, 49.5, 57.25, 61)(64, 68, 71.5, 75)”
Designed to fit actual bust measurements of:
