Lotus Smock Dress and Camisole
Crochet Hairpin Lace Pattern - Not an actual garment
The Lotus Smock is a super fast and easy project using crochet hairpin lace. If the beauty of Lotus doesn't entice you to try hairpin lace, perhaps the speed of this project will.
This try-on-as-you-go project can be completed in a weekend for the camisole-length or in a week for the knee-grazing dress. Lotus is created by joining hairpin lace strips of different lengths into a classic feather and fan pattern. The strips vary in length to hug the curves of the female form; each join is subtly different although the overall pattern of the dress remains the same.
Key to this design is the forgiving fit: not only is hairpin fabric stretchy, but also the texture of the join pattern helps Lotus obscure any bulges that you might like kept under wraps.
