AND!!!!! the neckline down the center had a small ruffle on it. It just didn't work with the busyness of the pattern. Couldn't close it without choking either. It had to go!!
I then pulled off the gold buttons and I had some purple buttons from another refashion (which has not posted b/c the dye project went bad) which I used to replace.
Then I took in the arms and sides. Which I discovered one of the gold buttons multiplied. Ack! Go away!!!
