No, I have no shame...after I binding off the stitches, I wanted to make sure the smaller lace work would fit over my head! I had that fear! So this was me yesterday a.m. before makeup just trying on the upper lace piece. Actually, the lace pattern yoke continues down to under your chest area. Fingers crossed it fits!!!
Obviously, the collar will lay flatter around the neck area with the weight of the lace and blocking. As you can see in the next picture of the actual pattern.
And just to show I can clean up, here I am all ready to head out with Bob.
No I didn't crochet or knit that black wrap. I bought that several years ago in Florida when my bud, Marcia, and I were shopping at the Villages. I think I paid $15 for it! Guess money I saved on buying yarn and making that I've spent on this lace top!
