I finally blocked, seamed, and finished Butterfly. After working on in continuously for about four weeks, I had to set it aside for a bit before I could actually finish it. But I did it, I finally did it.

Funny thing is, after I was done and ready to try it on, I started to freak out because, I was unsure if I made the right size. I don't know if this has ever happened to you, but I am constantly misjuding my size. One day I will make something that seems two sizes too small and then the next I will make it two sizes too big. I don't know why I am so unrealistic about my size.

And how I would love to model it for all of you, but if I did there would definitely be those blurry boxes across my, well, um, youknowwhats because I don't have anything to wear under it yet. I am trying to figure out what color would look best under it. When I do, I am going to make either a lining or a separate slip type dress to go under it.

So for now I will leave you this pic of it. The color is a bit more grey, with blue beads throughout. For a better idea of the true color, you could look at the pics from this post.

And just so you know, it fits like a glove.

awesome job! another FO. Don't you love clothing that just fits :) I am at that state of what to start next. I have a couple ideas but I think I may just take a break from knitting, it makes me too compulsive otherwise.
btw, those oompa loompas are cute! wish they were in the movie instead :)
