But I'm almost certain I'm the only one still reading this blog...
Anyway, I have now finished my Colchique and wear it all the time. Everything went quite smoothly, no ugly surprises when putting it all together. The sleeves are, as I suspected, slightly wide, as you can see in the picture, and the buttonpieces behave as one can expect and not as in the pattern picture.
Hope to see some more finished Colchiques here soon! I know I'm probably the last to finish, so please post pictures of your darlings.
