Notes

Love it. The frills at the hem and cuffs are a lovely touch. A wonderful pattern.

Because I used a slightly heavier weight yarn, I used 3.25mm needles throughout.

I modified the sleeves to make the cuffs a snugger fit. I cast on 53 stitches and then increased to 61 sts after the ribbing.

I omitted the Swiss darning as it overwhelmed the hearts pattern.

Sewing on 16 buttons was a bit of a pain but worth it in the end.
