Absolutely lovely; I hope mine comes out as well. I hope I finish it too. Are you pleased? I'm having difficulty being satisfied with the midriff...

I had terrible problems with the midriff, and never was completely satisfied. I had trouble keeping it from stretching while putting in the staystitching. I'm working on a sleeveless version in linen right now, and the back of the midriff looks better, but the front looks worse, so I can't win :). It is really satisfying, however, when it is done and wearable, so I hope you keep at it!

Thank you so much for responding. I am thinking to rip it apart again; but I really don't think it will improve with all of done with it thus far. So I put it off cause I can't proceed till I make a decision.
