I was wondering about this pattern and you have tipped it toward the yes, the fabric looks great and the colour really suits you.

The man can buy fabric, and you know what to do with it when he brings it home. I call that a perfect combination. I also call this a much better result than that . . . object they showed in the magazine. I didn't even look at the line drawing. Bravo.

Beautiful color. I noticed this pattern too and couldn't figure out how it was so boxy in the line drawing but so adorable on the model. Now, you've gone and done it too!
