    Congratulations Mollie on the tunic, it’s lovely! On the topic of summer sweaters have you seen the Mermaid Crop Top? It seems like it would fit the bill for a petite knitter and works really well with vintage-style high waisted skirts. Fair warning, I never remake patterns but have already made two in quick succession!
