DJC: Cat's Cradle v.2
- Manufacturer: Doris Chan
Here is the lace topper you are going to want in your wardrobe NOW. The design is newly revised for better drape and fit, with a lovely round contoured neckline, stunning lace stitch pattern, deep full fit through the arms, and a swingy trim. The booklet length pattern offers more sizing and length options than the original. Four generous sizes brilliantly cover a range of bodies and shapes from XS through 4XL, perhaps 5XL. It looks wonderful on every woman who has tried it on.
