K589 - Mother of the Bride
Mother of the Bride
Price: $4
Mother of the Bride is a beautiful lace tunic with an unusually beautiful lace pattern. If you are like me, you prefer to wear something that will cover up a lot, so this is a project for you. The beautiful lace pattern creates a graceful look for the wearer, yet it is fancy enough to be worn at a wedding. The front is open with a large V-neckline. The bottom edge, fronts and cuffs are decorated with 3 mm gold beads. Since the number of stitches for each lace repeat is 19, I will give the instruction for this design in 2 sizes. Keep in mind that the design is loose fitting and may look large for a small size person, but it will be graceful anyways.
