Notes

I made a great many modifications on this one.

See my blog posts: “A Crocheted Steek and Other Taiga Mods”, “About Those Sleeves” and “Bigger Stuff (1 of 2)” (covering the zipper insertion) for more information.

True fact: I did finish this project on the one year anniversary of it’s start date.

All of the photos are telling me that I need to work on my photography, get a new camera, or both. Taken over a period of one year, I can clearly see that the colors vary greatly from shot to shot.

(I eventually gave this one away. I did not like the collar. It may have helped to have made the back neckline higher. I will have to remember that.)
