Fleur progress

Fleur marches on. . .Try to ignore the fact that only half of it is seamed. (Try to ignore the blurry pix, too.) I decided to hold off on the edging until I tried the thing on, and now I see that it is impossibly short! It didn't look like this in the picture! No, indeed. They must have made it for dwarves! It practically grazed the waistline of that dwarf model's skirt.

That won't be happening here in Sharkville. Case in point:
It barely comes to the small of my back! To add insult to injury, it doesn't even hug the curve of my back in that cutesy sort of way. It does a little flippy thing.
I'm not sold on the seams over the arm, either.

Well. The edging I started is getting scrapped. I have to come up with something else now that I see it is so very short. I'm thinking of working with it as a bolero, instead of going against the grain and devising an edging to make up the difference in length. What do you think?

I think that if you can find a way to get it not to "pop" out in the back, it would be PERFECTLY CUTE at that length.
It's a great color, too.

I've been thinking about the flippy, poppy thing in the back. I'm hoping once I get the other side seamed and there is some counter-tension there, it will go away. But I'm not getting my hopes up.

The other option is putting a seam in the middle or 2 smaller ones on the sides of the back, sort of like princess seams.

It really IS a good color, if I do say so myself! It's called "peacock" (hence all the peacock imagery as of late) and so far the camera cannot capture how regal it really is.
