i forgot to add the mm at the end.  it took a while using that size of hook, but was well worth it!

Fantastic! I'm still new to crochet and am definetly not at the garment level, but this makes me want to get there soon!
The ribbed band at the bottom is a great idea! I don't know why so many sweaters (bought and made) end up so short, but then I like my shirts long.
In summary: love love love! And it looks great on you!

I'm glad you lengthened it. It would have been silly if you hadn't. I also love what you did with the sleeves. Very creative! I never use patterns exactly as they are either. I always modify them in some way.
