Holy crap, I love it.

I'm as surprised as anyone to discover that my Orangina does not make me look like a dwarf draped with a fishnet, and in fact, it looks pretty darn nice. I was a little worried because I'm short, flat-chested, and long-waisted, but this doesn't seem to matter.


Details to follow on my blog -- I don't have time to write a full post, but wanted to celebrate finishing anyway!

That is GORGEOUS on you! And you are gorgeous, too - willowy! I'd like to be willowy, instead I'm rather a dumpling (gonna start a "sexy dumplings club" maybe), but hey, it takes all kinds. Truly - the bateau neckline was MADE for you - and you've got killer shoulders! Congrats on a lovely finish.

Aw, thanks! Glad you like it.

It really looks great on you (and i enjoyed the write up on your blog!). Can i ask a question? Is it just through the magic of blocking that you keep the neckline from rolling down?

Some folks seem to have that problem and others don't, and I want to know how you so successfully avoided it!

When I blocked it, I did pin each "crest" individually. But I actually like the rolled-down look though, and wish mine curled a little more.

You look great in it!! Your orangina makes me really glad I chose to make mine with less ease. The slimmer the better, eh?

Fab knit, kudos to you!
