Front
Back

I may decide to frog back and add an inch or two, anybody else think it's a tad short? I really love the pattern, so simple, and yet so cute. The yarn is Bernat Bamboo. I am interested to see how well the yarn holds up. It's really soft, and I love the sheen it has to it, but it looks like it may be prone to pilling, or at least shedding.

Longer front
Longer Back

Aw, how cute are you?!

I think it looks nice as is, but would also look nice if you added a few inches. Either way, you win.

Oh my goodness you are adorable! That is a very flattering item on you! Makes me want one.

I agree with Knittermama...either way you'll win. Me personally? I'd add some length.

Wow, you're beautiful!! I personally would make it a bit longer, but it works either way.

Oh, that looks lovely. Great job! I keep seeing that pattern and wanting to make it but I'm not sure my boobs would fit!

Thanks

I decided to dig deep to find my inner perfectionist and frog back to add a few rows. I would have probably been constantly tugging at it while wearing it had I not. I'll post a new pic tomorrow after it's finished blocking.
