Lace Fabric Sweater




My lace fabric sweater pattern is a great addition to your wardrobe of winter clothes.

This beautiful jacket is worked in a design that will complement many outfits.

The casual ties allow an attractive blouse to be shown off underneath. Sweaters of this nature are suitably worn with skirts, pants, jeans, or over a warm winter dress.
