I made a plan, set my deadline, and followed through -- unbelievable but true. And what do I have to show for it?
The Rebecca Cardi is FINALLY done!
Here's a not so great light, headless shot of the front:
And one of the back where you can see the pattern detail a little better:
After seemingly endless pattern futzing -- and critical, German-engineered pattern decoding support from Alison -- the fit turned out pretty good! The arm length was perfect before I started steaming the bejeezus out of the armhole sleeve seam, and now they're a tad long-ish.
And I love the ribbing / eyelet lace detail -- Rebecca patterns rock! -- and the All Seasons Cotton really shows it off well.
