This took me a year to make… other things distracted me, but I am still very very happy with the finished garment :)

Pattern modifications,

Used a smaller size back than front to get it to “curve” in at the back. It was actually 2 sizes smaller than the front, to get to the required loose fit finished garment measurement for the bust.

Its hot here so no sleeves… left them off.

The neckline I liked low so I did not do the patterns “hem” but used a small width of velvet to cover the finished edges.

Used less wool than I thought but if you were going to do sleeves with this I would have needed to break into the second skine of Drops Lace.
