Lucy's Chemise Nightie by Joan McGowan-Michael,
White Lies Designs
Knitting nightwear may sound a bit odd, but what a great way to spoil yourself or add to a bride's trousseau.
I have sized this charmingly sexy chemise a little differently from the norm. Take your rib cage measurement just below the bust to size for the body and your regular bra cup size for the cup. This will give a customized fit for excellent coverage and body definition. Adjustable crochet straps and back elastic are a fine finishing touch.
If you can't bear to wear it to bed, feel free to pull it on over a tee shirt and skinny jeans for a lacy tunic look.
