Project Diving 2

More Project Diving at the weekend revealed this beauty.

It's a sleeveless top from Sirdar. Or at least so I believe. Stash diving has failed to produce the pattern tho' I know I have it somewhere.

The original pattern was entirely in plain stocking stitch, tho' it did have the eyelet ribbon row and the picot neck detail.

I really wanted to include some lace panels, and I think it works nicely with the leaf lace stitch below the eyelet row and the vertical eyelets to the shoulders above. (These may have been in the original pattern, can't remember.)

At the time I didn't know anything about waist shaping, or short-row bust shaping for the *ahem* assets, so it didn't actually look that great on.

I still liked it tho', and I immediately scored some variagated cotton in purple/cream for another one. I can always make some shaping adjustments if I ever get around to a 2nd version.

The colour is most accurate in this pic. It really is a beautiful green.

Wondering what else is hidden in the stash?

Stay tuned....
