Wow – even for me, Nicole has been a quick knit! Despite having with the beady problem to work out.
The fit has come a up little big, compared to the Rowan picture ,but I don’t reckon it looks too bad.
I think I simply made it a size too large! I’ve been going to the gym like a demon lately and I think I must have dropped a size! I’m hoping a trip through the washing machine and tumble dryer will help adjust to fit a little. (Or I’ll have to eat more pies)
Here she is….
I love the shaping around the neckline and the way the straps work. I’m amazed at how detailed and well thought out this little top has been.
And the back view…..
I think I may have “gilded the lilly” by getting a bit carried away and putting a bead on each of the buttons…
but it’s fun! If you think you recognise those buttons….they are the leftovers I had from Flu-flo!
