I promised pictures!
Right now, I'm done with the bodice, and I'm slaving through the many many rows of stockinette on the skirt. I'm a fast knitter, but it still feels like millions of miles of stockinette!
Here's a closeup of the bodice detail. I have to say, it's an amazing stitch.
Here's a shot of the whole thing, so far.
A few more inches, and I think I will be done - I should have just enough yarn left for the straps and the trim.
