Laura

Laura's long sleeves and back bodice, with plunging neckline, are adorned with Lace Entrelac – a wonderfully floral yet simple stitch repeat. The front panel is worked in stockinette. This piece is slim-fitting and extends mid-hip in length with garter stitch trimming. Worked bottom-up, the lower portion begins as one piece on circular needles until the underarm where it splits and each side is worked separately.
