—Sense and Sensibility, Vol. 1, Ch. 8
And so begins the extraordinary fate of Miss Marianne Dashwood. What better attire for our heroine than an Empire-waist cardigan with an intriguing cabled lace skirt and picot edging around the mitered neckline. Stockinette-stitch panels at the side make waist shaping easy, and the garter-stitch hem, cuffs, and integrated button band give a clean finish, allowing the picots to draw attention upward to your pretty face.
30¾ (34¾, 38¾, 42¾, 46¾) inch bust circumference, buttoned. Cardigan shown measures 34¾ inches and is modeled with 3 inches negative ease.
