I lasted a measly four rows with eleven bobbins before ripping back and deciding on a simpler approach.
There was also a slight modification with the sizing in that I cast on for the second size but increased for the third size by the time I reached the underarms.
I like this one a lot and have worn it quite often.
Coming up soon: a little yellow summer dress!
