China Doll Progress

The Wedge, with maximum bust ease. Seems I started too high, but wait...

The Wedge plus the Body, 6 rows. After some contemplation I've decided to start the Nip just as prescribed.

The Waist Shaping is complete, and I've included the recommended number of Sh Patt rows. The pattern says it should be hitting right above my navel. Yeah right! My navel is right wear those blue sweats start.

I've decided to continue in the Sh Patt lengthening by two rows until I think it goes where it should.

I'm ready to start the Flare or Hip Shaping now, but I don't have time for another picture right now. The bust shaping worked out fine dontcha think? I need a tank with better support. I just got a new bra, and I'd like to have on that undergarment while wearing this but after blocking, this will turn into an open weave fabric like it was designed to be. Hmmmm, what to do? Forgive my funny picture taking face.

@Karen: I can't wait to see it either.

@Virtuous: I'm trying it on contiually. This pattern is tricky. Yes, that Aquaphor keeps TeddyBear's exema tame. I skipped one day from laziness and that crap doubled!

@Patrice: If I stop, ain't no way I'm gone be able to figure out where I left off. It's not that bad though, just not for beginners.
