Summer Pelisse Detail Large Image - Childrens's Sweater/Cardigan

The romantic effect of layering garments during the
Regency era continues to be fashionable and practical today. The pelisse's form, halfway between a coat and a dress, inspired me to create this fanciful cardigan for my daughter to wear over a summer dress. Generous in length and width, the body of the pelisse is knit in a beautiful yet easy learn lace stitch pattern. The garment is open in the front up to the empire waistline closure which allows a layer worn beneath to be revealed. The design is accentuated by sweet ties where the puffed sleeve caps and waistline are gathered. Published in Jane Austen Knits, Summer 2012, by Interweave Press.
