I'll try to add a picture of me wearing it later, but for now, here it is!!!

I made the sleeves shorter than the pattern says, and I did the sleeves in the round instead of flat - I don't know why they weren't written in the round in the first place.

I'm not sure about the i-cord tie, it seems so bulky when it's tied so I'm considering ripping the i-cord tie parts back and just leaving the i-cord neck edging, and using some kind of ribbon as a tie instead. We'll see!

Gorgeous! I love the stripes, too.

I was thinking about leaving off the ties and doing a single button for mine...this is assuming I ever pick some yarn and get started.
