Just an update!
I have decided on a shorter vest since it's for summer. Would look cute with a flirty mini skirt.. in hot pink denim with a matching Danskin top!! Linnea if you are reading this start looking for hot pink or lime green denim! I will mail you a snippet of the two yarns so you can color match!
Right now it's at six inches and according to the books it should just graze the waist, so I am ready to attack the armholes - won't this be fun!
