The Bailar Vest by Susanna IC for Knit Picks is a duster length, open front vest with lace panels on the fronts and back, bordered with a bit of Stockinette. The lace pattern requires paying attention on both sides of the project, so this isn’t a beginner lace pattern, but it’s definitely worth the effort for a great little garment to wear over a long dress (or even a short dress, if you like).
The pattern is worked in fingering weight yarn and is available in 10 sizes with a chest measurement ranging from 40.5 inches to 76.5 inches. It can be worn with a lot of ease, or less if you prefer.
You can download this pattern alone or the ebook of knit lace patterns it is included in from Knit Picks.
