FINISHED SUMMER SHELL — w/additions

Well, it’s finally done, the simple shell I’ve been working on for — well, forever, it seems. Of course, when I finally tried it on, I realized that it sure wasn’t going to work for me at this age. It was about 3 inches too short! Argh! My 22-year-old daughter even tried it on and wasn’t a taker. So I picked up a gazillion stitches around the bottom and added about three inches of a lace pattern from a hat I had been playing with. This is the finished product. I actually like it. The only problem I find with it is the armholes are a bit tight. Not quite sure if there’s anything at all I can do about it, but I’ll probably wear it anyway, at least a couple times this summer.
