Crochet a red chinese-style chest covering


  1. It's quite lovely. All your work is. But could you tell me, "What is a stomacher?"
    I'm not sure how I'll get your answer.

    1. This is the ancient Chinese women bra, now some Chinese babies surround the chest and navel with the stomacher.

  2. A stomacher is historically a "V" shaped panel of decorative fabric that fills in the front opening of a gown, bodice or blouse; in modernity is its a piece of fabric usually used to raise the neckline of same garments so as to cover more of the chest and/or neck of the individual than the garment does without the panel.
