Elinor Tunic Revisited

Do you remember this? It is the Elinor Tunic from Interweave Knits. When I finished it, I swear it was longer. When I looked in the mirror, I thought it looked good. But something about the finished picture always bothered me. I thought it looked too short. So I did it! I finally went back and added an inch and a half to the length, and bound of with the main color. (I had mistakenly bound off with a contrasting color the first time around.) I'm so glad I did it. Now I think it has a chance of being worn. It wasn't that bad either. It only took about an hour. I'm much happier with these results.

I can't believe what a difference an inch makes!

That looks lovely! Isn't it nice when you are able to make something for yourself and tailor it to be perfect for you. You don't get that with mass produced!

Oh, wow, that is better (not that it was bad the first time round), but this looks great - and I love the side vents, too!
