I promised better photos of this project after I took some bad ones late at night just to show you that I am actually working on it. It's taken me a couple of days because everytime I've been looking at this project I just want to add more rows to it. The rows are quick and easy and I'm about 3/4 of the way through the back already.
The pattern starts across the top of the back and goes down to the hem. Then you add the shoulders, then join the front and work down to the hem. This means the only sewing you have to do are the two side seams. I may need to add some panels or something down the side though to make it fit just a little bit better.
The purples are a little bit brighter than this in real life but not by much. It reminds me of Jacaranda trees which to me always means spring. I am going to get this done in the next couple of weeks and be able to wear it for the summer. It's so exciting!
