Giselle, ma belle...

Is it still March? Yep, just barely! I actually had this one finished a couple of weeks ago, and I've already worn it several times, but I only just got around to taking the pictures today.




I made it in size small (the first numbers in parentheses), using 8 skeins of Debbie Bliss Pure Silk in purple and 1 ball of Katia Gatsby in gold for the trim.

I am very happy with the fit and, despite the miles of stockinette hell, it was actually a pretty fun project. I particularly liked how the sleeve flares were shaped.

I love it! It makes me wish I had done the longer version!. I may have to think about doing another. I, too, loved the way the shaping was done on the flounces! Ingenious design!
