Arielle is finished!

FINISHED! Arielle from Misty by Kim Hargreaves.
I love this top and am wearing it today - although better suited to spring/summer I would wear a cardi over the top - or a shawl!? - yes? suggestions, please? and though I wasn't sure about the small cap sleeves (suiting my arms) I think for the warmer weather it will be fine and with a cardi atop also fine.

I alternated the lovely little buttons - plain and flowered - and am wearing it as per design half undone! Love it!

buttons finish it off

Lilly checks before I sew up

I said before how beautiful it was Sue but just wanted to say it again! lol Really, really lovely!! I like the idea of a shawl with it I think but would also look nice with a cardi too but prefer the shawl I think! LOVE the buttons and it looks GOOD on YOU!!! xxx
