View Full Version : Lace Pattern to Cover Cleavage
05-09-2007, 11:17 PM
Hello, I am going to be in a wedding in June, and the dresses that were chosen for us are somewhat low cut. In order to feel more comfortable, I would like to knit a little lacey square or something to put in the cleavage area. My question is, what lace pattern do you guys think would look best. The dress I am wearing is brown and the lace part will be in white. Here is a link. http://www.alight.com/10112468.html
Any help you guys could give me is much appreciated. Thank you!

I would keep it real simple, so as not to compete with the embroidery.
Maybe plain with an eyelet on the edge?

I agree that keeping in simple is probably best... but what about something in a leaf pattern, maybe like this? http://www.knitty.com/issuespring05/PATTbranchingout.html
I also just ran across this site which seems to have patterns for knitting lace edgings and insertions... http://www.knitting-and.com/homework/#EIC

First off, what a CUTE dress, I love it!!
I kind of feel like a knitted insert would take away from the details already on the dress. What about some kind of plain shell or tank underneath? Perhaps in the same colour as the dress?

how about cleaves (http://www.knitty.com/issuespring05/PATTcleaves.html)--its designed for that very purpose!
(the only thing i don't like about it is how the arms are so wide and baggy, but maybe you can change that.

KnitQueen - You and I are totally on the same page! I absolutely love that dress... even may purchase one for myself! Anyway, I was thinking of a really nice tank underneath, something that would cover you, but would not take away from the loveliness of the dress. I would think that if you knit something you would have to be really careful that it not get too heavy or take away from the dress.

Thank you all. I think I agree with just wearing a tank top. the problem is that the back of the dress cuts down like the front, so it would show. If I do knit something I will probably go with this: http://www.knitting-and.com/homework/daisy-lace.htm Only with just the flowers. I am really glad that the bridesmaids get to wear this dress and not something ugly. :teehee:

No kidding, what a GREAT dress, and something you'll probably be able to wear again (at least I would!) :hug:
