The Regency Inspired Summer Crochet Top
"This pattern was inspired by the high-waisted gowns of the regency era. The pattern is breathable and great for summer weather! The Truboo yarn has a lovely drape but a lot of positive ease, especially after blocking. Consider sizing down for a more tailored fit. The pattern uses bust size as a guide so you can tailor it to fit you perfectly. If you are slender, consider doing less increases If you have a smaller waist, consider weaving in a ribbon or a chain of yarn to cinch at the first row of double crochets Remember to try on as you go!! You can tailor this pattern to fit you as best as possible. "
