Wow.  That came out really well.  What did we ever do without seam rippers?  Junk a lot of projects, probably.

I second (or third or fourth or whatever the number is up to) the separate skirt idea.  That top would look cute with jeans or a denim skirt and it's a lot more versatile by itself.  Plus, I'm not a big fan of tulle, but that's just me Wink

Great job!

Yeah, I'm not sure I'm brave enough to wear it around for no apparent reason.  Plus, I've gained a little weight since then, so I'm not sure I could get into it without ripping out the hooks and eyes that hold the bodice closed.

I should make a costume for my husband to match.  He'd go around dressed like that, no problem.  We could recreate the French court here in Allentown . . .

I knew I'd get my ego stroked posting it on here . . .

I made this dress last summer for no particular reason except that I liked it and I'd made a corset earlier and needed something to wear with it.

This is the first project I'm posting, so if the picture doesn't show up, here's the link, which will hopefully work: click me

  I wore it on Halloween giving out candy at my mother's house--and not one person said anything about it!!!!  I was a little miffed about that.  Anyway, it was from the Butterick 3640   pattern.  I skipped the ruffle at the bottom because I had no way to easily pin it evenly to the bottom of the skirt.  There are a few little mistakes here and there, but overall I think it came out damn well Kiss

How about an unusual/obscure word for red?  Toxic Vermilion/Blush/Rouge/Cerise  Using a word like that would give your name a bit of mystery and allure that Jelly Beans just can't quite convey, imo--if that's anything you're interested in, of course.

(Can you tell I'm a writer?  My first thought was to hit the thesaurus . . .)

That's why a notebook is my best friend when it comes to some of these knitting patterns.  Glad I could help Wink

I've just finished knitting the left front side of the bolero and saw your post.  It sounds like you may have stopped after doing the decreases on the neck side every 4th row, 10 times.  You have to do the shaping as for the back for as many rows as you did for the back, including any that continue beyond the every 4th row, 10 times decreases.  (For example, I did this--stopping after the 4th row increases, which left me with 9 too many stitches.  Turns out I had skipped the last 9 sets of repeats from the back shaping.  Went back and did them, and voila--5 stitches left.)

I hope this makes sense.  If not, I can try to type out the row by row instructions I wrote out for myself.  That might help you, too, if you go through and write out the instructions in a notebook, row by row.  That's the only way I'm getting through this pattern!

Yay!! Fraggle Rock!!  That's an awesome diorama--my face lit up in a big grin when I saw it (yes, I'm 25 and I still get happy when I see the Fraggles).

Zitrone means lemon in German.  Apparently I always look like I'm mad because people are constantly telling me to smile or asking me what's wrong.  Anyway, my first year German teacher was this super-wacky guy (he'd keep a running count of how many rabbits he saw outside the window on the blackboard, write on himself with chalk, jabber at you in Russian if you spoke English without asking)--(sorry, I digress).  Anyhow, he started calling me Die Zitrone (Die pronounced as Dee) because I always looked so sour. 

Then I added 21 because it's my birthday (June 21, it's coming up and I'll be the big 25--eek!); so all my user names are some version of this: diezitrone, zitrone21, lemon21, etc, etc.
