Pattern Description:

Bring out your inner Marianne Dashwood in this casual tank with an elegant feel. It's worked from the bottom up in the round with seed stitch hem and straps and an allover leaf lace motif on the bodice. The worsted weight cotton/acrylic blend works up quickly with plenty of drape. The bodice is lined with a contrasting sport weight yarn in linen, adding a splash of color. The straps are lined with ribbon to prevent stretching and attached to the tank with four buttons. Pattern includes chart and written instructions for lace and a schematic.
