Nelkin Designs' shares her
inspiration for this knit top...Janet Leigh
is the more mature, less revealing grown-up
version of Jamie Lee!
is a fitted seamless shell with lacy ribbing at the hem and neckline, waist
shaping, raglan cap sleeves and a shell lace panel traveling up each side.
The lace pattern is interesting enough to keep you from getting bored while you
whip up the body, and the top gets done in no time at all. The lace on the
sides is solid enough that your under"wear" won't show too much, but airy enough
to keep you cool on a hot day. Besides having the cap sleeves, Janet Leigh
is 1.5" longer than Jamie Lee... other than that the patterns are quite similar.
