Here is a beautiful pattern that you can try on as you go! It is worked top down. Very easy and quick!
And for those that have a full figure, this one is a winner!
Mods: I chose to do a 3" collar rather than a 5". I kept a very tight tension (obtaining a dense fabric for the bust area), until I came to the waistline. Instead of switching back to the smaller needle for the waist, I continued with the larger needle, use less tension.
The pictures were taken before it was blocked. I had to put it away because I did not want my niece to see it yet..lol. Hopefully, I will be able to bring it back out this weekend and block the beauty!
