The lace portions can be added as you wish, and the shawl neckline is optional. Camellia is constructed from the top-down and is completely seamless. The pattern includes many modification options to make sure that it fits YOUR body and style including adjusting measurements of bust and sleeves, adding length, customizing shawl neckline and lace panels, and adding hip shaping. Definitely one to become a wardrobe staple.
