Another UFO sighting

Here's the Lace Blouson from Summer 2004 (I think) Interweave, with a couple of notable exceptions: I omitted the eyelet row for the silk ribbon above the lace at the bottom. I just wanted something loose and comfortable--the eyelets look great if you have a defined waist, but my body has become a Joan Rivers joke* (before she became the obnoxious sideshow freak that she now is, she was quite funny.) I also shortened the length to compensate for the fact that there won't be any "blousing" (if that makes sense before 8:00 am on Saturday) to this blouson.

*"My thighs are awful, thank God my stomach covers them."

Anyroad, the yarn is something I picked up at Stitches West in February, a mercerized sportweight cotton called "Kairo" made by Steinbach Wolle. It looks like I'm gonna be lucky to get this thing made with 10 balls, which is the entirety of the bag I purchased. Bad news, story of my life, this yarn is gonna be tough to find if I need one more ball. But feckit, I'm too far along to frog and I have a skirt which will go perfectly with it. So...grrrr.

Sharp eyes will see the blatant mistake I have already made, the obvious jog in the vine lace, but this is the back of the garment, I've appeased the goddess, and I'm going to soldier on.
