The stitch used in this piece is based on a victorian pattern called “Crazy Stitch” because of its tendency to lean one direction in one row and the opposite direction in the next. This same leaning quality gives this silky fabric exceptional drape and a flattering fit.
Bust Circumference: 32(34, 36, 40, 44, 48)” 81[86, 91, 102, 112, 122]cm
