The Lotus Smock is asuper fast and easy projectusing crochethairpin lace. If the beauty of Lotus doesn't entice you to try hairpin lace, perhaps the speed of this project will.
This try-on-as-you-go project can be completed in a weekend for the camisole-length or in a week for the knee-grazing dress. Lotus is created by joining hairpin lace strips of different lengths into a classic feather and fan pattern. The strips vary in length to hug the curves of the female form; each join is subtly different although the overall pattern of the dress remains the same.
Key to this design is the forgiving fit: not only is hairpin fabric stretchy, but also the texture of the join pattern helps Lotus obscure any bulges that you might like kept under wraps.
