    Gorgeous design. Do you have any pictures of it in a solid color, or of a person wearing it, to give a better idea of its particulars?

    I really love the look of it, and it looks like it might be perfect for one of the fabrics I’ve had sitting in my stash for awhile. I may add some sleeves because I’m in dire need of short-sleeved tops, but I think I’m going to have to try this one out! :)
