Fluttery sleeves on this delicate crochet top add a truly feminine touch. The body is crocheted in a simple stitch, accented with a band of single crochet just below the bust. An open lace crochet stitch is used in the upper bodice, and contrasts beautifully with the solid stitch below. A shapely v-neck and a pretty crochet flower complete the look.
This crochet pattern includes full-color photos of the project, including a flat shot, schematics, and crochet stitch symbols, as well as written out instructions.
