i got round to sewing mine up today, and i'm so happy with how it turned out. i think i stretched it a little too much when blocking because i was so worried it'd be too small, but it should fix itself in the wash.
i left out the cables for the back, mainly because i couldn't be bothered to do it all again, and just made up a pattern of knit and purl stitches to best match the front.
i liked using pure cotton, though it is a little heavy...i'm also having trouble finding an appropriate bra to wear underneath (hence why it's modelled on bettie!).
