Dark Red Pretties

  • Dark Red "Pretties" is a delightful pattern for knitted, lacy cami-bockers - an all-in-one underwear piece comprised of comfy thigh-length 'bloomers' attached to vest-style upper body featuring a delicate front lace panel. Ribbons are attached to make dainty straps and additional ribbon is threaded through the bodice for decorative effect.

    This gorgeous undergarment is knitted using Susan Crawford Miranda, a luxurious, lace-weight, alpaca, silk and cashmere blend in shade Sanguine, hand-dyed in-house by Susan and her team; which is incredibly soft next to the skin but also provides warmth and makes the Dark Red Pretties just perfect for layering under a little tea-dress in the cooler months.

    Our model Fleur is shown wearing the second size.

    The pattern includes instructions for four sizes to fit chest measurements between 76cm (30in) and 112cm (44in) and contains clear written instructions plus a schematic diagram and sizing chart.
