Not Quite Joan ...Crawford, that is
In Lana d'Oro Handpaints, this fitted cardigan with high-relief cables was inspired by a sweater from the 1940s. The vintage piece, complete with shoulder pads, could have adorned Joan Crawford or any of her film rivals. The updated look is worked in a hand-painted alpaca/wool blend and accented with asymmetric buttons.

A traditional Estonian lace border stitch with its beautiful looped edge has been adapted for this stylish bolero. An unusual one-piece construction allows the lace to remain flat with the right side always showing. Pretty little buttons that fit through the holes in the lace eliminates the need for buttonholes.
