About The Lady's Evening Jumper: Delicate, lacy and oozing vintage glamour, the Lady's Evening Jumper is the perfect night-time soiree garment. With a high round neck and delicately puffed, three-quarter length sleeves, it is an elegant and lightweight piece, that can easily take you from day to evening.

The jumper is knitted in an all-over lace pattern with clever shaping created at waist and cuff which requires no decreasing or increasing of stitches within the pattern. The jumper has a side opening on one shoulder, secured with press fasteners.

Knitted in Marilyn a gloriously soft blend of 55% merino wool and 45% silk. The sample has been knitted using the hand dyed shade of Black Narcissus, a vibrant purple.

The pattern includes charted instructions for the lace section.
