Shawlettes for M'Lady eBook
  This item has not been reviewed yet

Jodie Gordon Lucas loves Shakespeare comedies. Even though they are predictable, and (in the current liberated climate) dreadfully un-PC, there is just something universally appealing about the Bard's sense of humor. Throw in a few cross-dressing women, add some gender-bending repartee and sneak in a practical joke or two and you just can't go wrong.

She also loves to make and wear well-fitting shawls. Unfortunately she finds so many patterns (including several of her own) are beautiful when they are flat but put them on and they bunch and gather. If you spend untold hours creating a wrap, you want your work to actually show!

When Jodie created the structure used for all the shawlettes in this series a half-circle which conforms lovingly to the shoulders, she knew she needed to dedicate the series to Good Old Bill's ladies. Like the comedies, the framework is the same for all the shawls but each has its own unique pattern.

This collection features lace designs and is dedicated the ladies of three comedies: Olivia and Viola from Twelfth Night; Beatrice and Hero from Much Ado About Nothing and Portia and Jessica from The Merchant of Venice. These ladies are strong, sassy, and in some cases tragic and the shawlettes are created in their tribute reflect a bit of their story.

The patterns are presented in both written and charted formats and offer 3 different lengths (all are pictured in the shortest length).
