This fabric wasn't really suitable for the v-neck version. It just didn't want to gather properly in the front. Using the ruffler fixed that, but if I had done it by basting and gathering, it would never have been finished. I'm amazed that I didn't simply throw it out, but I'm SO glad I let it hang around.
As always, it looks much better on me than on the hanger.
I've also completed S2369... details on that later. Oh, and I started knitting a new pair of socks, just for fun.
