Boho and beautiful, this lacy crochet vest perfectly compliments flowy dresses and tops. Worked in the round from the center out, this cardigan vest is fun to make and to wear – our model couldn’t resist a bit of twirling with this vest draped over her shoulders!

SEWING PATTERN NOTES
I have sewn this dress pattern twice before, and love it so much that I wanted to include it in this collection. It is McCall’s 7383, and includes different lengths, sleeve options, and hem finishes in the pattern envelope. I went for view C here, which is the sleeveless option with a handkerchief hem.
This pattern is available as part of e-book Where Knitting Meets Sewing or as an individual pattern via Ravelry.
