After putting in the effort to finish Elizabeth, I’m disappointed to find, she’s turned out too big 🙁
This really isn’t helping my lack of knitting mojo!
I think she wearable but not the sleek, elegant fitted look I was expecting…see what you think….
It’s ok over the hips but huge under the arms.
Mewsley tried to join in and make me feel better but it was beyond even her fluffy skills (hmmm, except I’m smiling more in that shot!)…
The “girls” at the Guilty Knitters suggested that a deep V neck like this is better suited to a big busted woman. One thing I sadly am not!! When I breathed in and puffed up my chest it did fit better but…I don’t think I could sustain that through an entire working day 😉
I do think I got the buttons right – I looked at matching, same coloured ones but thought they would just disappear into the jacket…but you cant go far wrong with neutral shell buttons…. and actually, that’s the kinda buttons in the picture in the book.)
Wanna see the back? you can see all the extra fabric…
So what to do with it? I may wear it to give it a “road test” but I deeply suspect my sister is in for an early Christmas prezzy ….
