New Pattern: Lavaliere

First off, I am tearing myself away from watching the news of the terrible tragedy still unfolding in Japan to write this post.  My heart is with the people in Japan and those with family and friends there.

The panel at the center back and the collar are worked in a simple smocking pattern.

Approx yards: 690 (730, 780, 850, 910, 1010, 1070, 1140, 1210) yards
