To achieve the lovely drape of lace from the shoulders, this garment is cast on at the neckline and worked briefly to add strength and substance to the shoulder straps. Then stitches are bound off for armholes, and the front and back are worked separately to the bottom of the armholes. From there, the entire body is worked in the round to create a seamless expanse of the lacy fabric.
It's surprisingly simple, but because of the intriguing construction - and the lacework - I categorized the skill level as Intermediate. Fortunately, the lace pattern is a symmetrical 12-stitch repeat, so the lace itself is not a major challenge.
