FO: Harriet Bolero

As I mentioned yesterday, I did get the Harriet Bolero finished. It had a little soak, blocked and dried just beautifully:

Isn’t it sweet? It’s a very simple top-down design, but oh so classic. The only modification I made was to put long sleeves on it. I hope they are long enough for Miss Wren, because I had to take the length measurement from a different pattern. (This pattern only has short sleeves).

Adding the longer sleeves used almost all of the two skeins of Fat Cat I had. I searched the button stash for the perfect buttons. I didn’t have much in pink that was the right size, so I ended up taking a different tack.

I think it works!

Now, I have to decide on a dress to go with it. I’m torn between these two from old Navy

I may just watch for a good sale and get them both!

    The bolero is just the cutest thing ever! I love the edging and the cat button. With the colors on my screen, I like the first dress best.

    That kitty button is perfect! Nice work on the bolero; it’ll look great with either of those dresses, or both! Wren is a lucky little gal.
