It took me three hours to make which is the time I spent searching. I was able to fit my narrow shoulders and wider hips. Yes, I am a classic pear shape. I also have short arms and always have to roll up the sleeves of bought clothes. This is lucky for me this time as I only bought 2 metres and the pattern called for two and a half.
I am now on the lookout for a knit to make my second one.
