Hot Patterns Metropolitan Sweater Dress

This is a super easy pattern, so I am just going to write a few lines. The neckline is fabulous, I love the wrapped v-neck look. I did staystitch the "v" and then followed those lines when stitching the neckband.

The sweater came out way too boxy, so I altered the side/sleeve seams. I used Paint to recreate the lines on the short sweater. Click on the image below to see this.

I also removed the bottom band, my sweater knit was very stretchy and the band just didn't look so good.

Here is a picture. I think it is super-cute and fun, not sure the picture portrays this. Hubby told me several times how nice I looked. The sweater looks cute without the belt, too.
