Elizabeth

The abundant cowl collar of this pieces establishes it as a regal standout.  Garter trimmed flame chevron lace (easily done) is inserted in a deep arc around the neckline.  A shapely bodice, worn plain or belted, and bracelet-length sleeves add to its styling.  Elizabeth is slim-fitting and extends mid-hip length with garter trimming at the hems. Worked bottom-up, the lower portion begins as one piece on circular needles until the start of the front neckline where it splits and each side is worked separately.
