Lastly I needed to slim it down. I put it on backwards and physically pinned the silhouette I need to match my shape. At least that is one thing I have learned now- how to not poke myself with pins and how to sew a nice curve along those pins.
It will work for St. Patty's Day! It is still cool out so I am still cold and freeze. I will have to find some green GLUTEN free beer. LOL. But it is green for St. Patty's day and it was a discarded sweater that I turned into something I could wear. :) yay!
