Inspired by late Victorian era nightgowns, Hattie is a sexy dress worked from and bottom up and in the round. Bands of lace knit in a heavier weight yarn give the fabric just enough textural interest without taking away from its wonderful drape. Delicate satin ribbons are threaded through eyelets and tied into pretty bows which along with lace shoulder straps and button placket finish this piece with just the right amount of sweet girlishness.
