Made using the BurdaStyle Lydia pattern, size small, with mods for the back and front scoops. The lace has “mechanical” stretch added and the under layer is a white ITY knit. I treated both pieces as one, starting by serging the shoulders together.
It was DEAD easy because both layers stayed flat without pinning. I put the sleeves in flat and then stitched the side seams. The sleeve and bottom hems are unfinished, the neckline is folded over and top stitched.
