I Heart Rogue!

posted by emily

She's done! And she actually fits. In fact after all the futzing I did to get the sleeves long enough for my freakishly long arms, they actually relaxed a little with blocking and are plenty long now. The hood all evened out with blocking, and the sleeve seam is nearly invisible. What a great pattern! I'm almost glad it rained today so it was cool enough to wear. Here are some pics WG took on Friday. Clearly my career as a model will be short, but Rogue will have a long and happy life.
