I decided to knit this little top for S and since it is made for a older girl I went down two needle sizes *using a six rather then a 8* and it worked out well.
The yarn is a merino plant dyed color that I bought at Sheep & Wool this past Fall. The color reminds me of ballet slippers.
Design: The boatneck collar is a bit floppy but, I like it. I forgo ribbing at the sleeves and did not do the color changes that were in the pattern. The hem is finished by sewing the bottom up making it a bit elastic. It's showing a bit here... not sure if I should try & re-sew it down. A vintage wood button that is decorative completes it.
Overall: I really like the way this turned out. A nice and easy pattern to follow. A good Spring/Fall piece. Perfect for right now.
She is wearing this dress underneath. I made that a year and a half ago for the size she is now.
