Updated Instructions! Purchase of the Baroque Jacket now includes instructions for an alternate collar design.
This alternate collar design for the Baroque Jacket is fuller, more delicate and provides increased styling versatility. Better yet, it requires less yarn so this new collar design will cost less and take less time to make!
This lacy crochet jacket exemplifies the feminine, romantic look so popular on the runways now. The jacket is designed to be form-fitting, worn over a simple dress, tank top or halter. A key to the design is an ornate fan-pattern stitch motif, which provides flaring at the sleeves and at the waist without the need to increase or decrease. The crochet jacket design also features accentuation of the waist with 2 luxurious silk ribbons, and the change in stitch direction at the lower rear lends a subtle bustle-like effect.
