A Lacy Camisole to Knit Knitting Pattern Download
My camisole features a lace rib to hug the body, a beautiful lace with picot edge at the lower edge, and a lace inset at the neckline. Knitted with a fine pima cotton, it feels like lingerie against the skin. Wear it as a top or layer it and allow a bit of lace to show, leaving much to the imagination. Just like an Edwardian!
