I used the Layla pattern but added the lace as a detail…I think I would have preferred the front pocket to be in contrasting black but didn’t have much black handy. Also, just a note, I am 5’5 and the neck strap was waaaay too long. I had to crop it down quite a bit. I thought I’d mention it because I sewed it on first, then tried it and it was too long, thus followed some annoying unpicking. And yes, that’s a wisk.
