Kira K Designs is a line of original knitting and crochet patterns with a streamlined and eminently wearable aesthetic. Research on historical clothing, which Kira did during her former career as a theatrical costume designer, is a strong influence on her design sense, and many patterns reference styles from the 1920s through the 1960s. Kira's family history of Danish Modern furniture design is also an important influence on her patterns, resulting in garments and accessories with clean lines and intriguing details that are both interesting to make and easy to wear.

The sleekly fitted upper bodice and gracefully draping body makes this the perfect top for warm spring and summer days. The bodice is started in the round, and then separated into front and back. The lace body is worked downward from the foundation chain. For the most flattering fit, choose your size based on the over-bust measurement, which should fit with little or no ease. This pattern was originally published in Interweave Crochet magazine.
Note: for the most flattering fit, choose a size that will be close-fitting at the over-bust and loose at the bust.
