Nelkin Designs Jamie Lee PDF
Jamie Lee is inspired by, you guessed it, Jamie Lee Curtis and those sexy mock t-neck tops she used to wear in the 80’s… Jamie Lee is a fitted tank, with a lacy ribbing at the hem and neckline, waist shaping, and a shell lace panel traveling up each side. The lace pattern is interesting enough to keep you from getting bored while you whip up the body, and the top gets done in no time at all. The lace on the sides is solid enough that your under”wear” won’t show too much, but airy enough to keep you cool on a hot day.
If you like this pattern but prefer something with sleeves then check out the equally lovely Janet Leigh pattern.
