Thanks for your patience. Life has thrown a few curve balls that have prevented me from offering Linea as quickly as I had hoped.
Since this is the first time I will be charging for a pattern, I have set up and account to accept payment through Paypal. I have yet to work out all of the geeky bits. So for now, after I have received your payment, I will e-mail the PDF file to you. You can expect the file in less than 24 hours.
Linea is a lacy summer top. Fabric knit from bamboo yarn has a lovely drape. The elastic in the Esprit yarn adds stability to the bodice, which is knit at a tight gauge for the yarn. The armhole depth and shoulder straps are designed to allow a bra or camisole to be worn underneath. The top is knit in one piece from the bottom up.
