Basic Skills Necessary:

  • working lace from charted and/or written instructions,
  • working in the round
  • short row shaping

Pattern Description:

In the corseted days of yesteryear, bloomers and bicycles meant freedom for the sensible woman-about-town. Parisian Delight is a tribute to those first women to shed their skirts and hop on two wheels. It's a playful feminine garment, perfect for indulging in your own shocking spectacle of independence, or just lounging about at home. They're worked seamlessly from the bottom up in a silky, luxurious yarn; the seat is shaped with short rows for a flattering, comfortable fit, and flirty lace edges the cuffs.

This pattern was originally known as Miss Bloomers Bifurcated Ensemble, but has since been updated and now includes more sizes.
