Ester finds a home

All was not lost - my friend is pretty happy with this "hand-me-down", so the fit issue has been resolved. I ended up just using a kilt pin style fastening which seems to work pretty well.
I love the way that the subtle striping curves over the bust. I think this yarn really was a good find.
I haven't given up on the idea of making another Ester for myself, but when I do, I plan to make a couple of adjustments. One to the overall length of the piece so that it actually does make it across my chest and also increasing the width (especially of the upper section) so that it takes into account my "generously" proportioned upper arms.

Fits beautifully! And you are so right about those lovely lovely stripes. Keep us posted if you start another. I'd love to learn from your modifications!!
